The courses we offer are:
Basic awareness of Safeguarding children and young people : For staff who do not have regular or direct contact with children and young people but they come into indirect contact with families or children in their role. For example, administration or reception/greeting staff, premises staff etc.
Essential awareness of safeguarding children and young people: For staff who have either regular supervised or any form of unsupervised contact with children and young people. This would certainly include practitioners, teachers, mentors or those involved in pastoral / support work with children etc.
Advanced awareness of safeguarding children and young people: For staff or volunteers who are engaged in more complex work with vulnerable or disadvantaged children, young people or families. It would include those who may need to liaise with staff from other organisations (such as health, early help or social care services etc.) in relation to safeguarding issues.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: role and responsibilities: For those who are the nominated safeguarding lead for the organisation; in other words, they are the “go to” person for anyone who has concerns about a child or young person. (Please note; there is also a course for those responsible for governance and this course does not cover that content).
Strategic management of safeguarding children and young people for senior managers or those with a governance role : This level of training is for organisation leaders, officers, trustees or Designated Officers, who have responsibility for policies, procedures, systems, training etc. for the organisation.
Safer recruitment and ongoing safe management of staff and volunteers : This level of training is for those who appoint and oversee the work of staff and/or volunteers who are involved in the organisations activities and service delivery
