Safeguarding Children:

7 Minute Briefings

7 Minute Briefings

Seven minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. It is based on research, which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn. Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.

The LSCB is aware of increasing pressure on services, which can make it difficult to release staff to attend training, as well as the need to keep learning and developing to maintain a skilled workforce, and that these short, team based learning events might be a helpful way to support learning.

The content of the briefings will be a mixture of new information (such as learning from Serious Case Reviews) or a reminder/repeat of basic information with challenge to think about the application to practice in the team.
