This one-day, Group 5 training course enables staff to develop awareness and understanding of safeguarding and child protection so they are well equipped to carry out their crucial role in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.


Schools and further education colleges have a statutory duty under S175/S157 Education Act 2002 to ensure they safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Ofsted expects all designated child protection and safeguarding leads to receive training every two years as a minimum. Everybody working with children, teaching and non-teaching staff including volunteers, must receive basic child protection training once every three years at a minimum. Child protection training courses at level one are also available as an in-school training option. 


Who should attend?


Designated child protection staff and anyone whose work brings them into contact with children, either directly or indirectly.



Why attend?



  • Find out how staff can contribute to the safeguarding ethos of the school by
    exploring good practice issues including: managing confidentiality, information-sharing,
    recording, whistle-blowing, professional boundaries and managing professional disagreement.
  • Learn about the role of the designated safeguarding lead and child protection processes and the legislative duties of all staff from the point of concern through to referral and assessment.
