Industry leading courses you can do online
At Safeguarding Support, we understand how stretched your resources, safeguarding teams and workloads are. In fact, there has never been more or a need to offer our clients flexible, engaging and effective training.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) training is fully compliant with the criteria as laid out in Keeping Children Safe in Education and as described in the previous level 3 Designated Safeguarding Lead level system.
Our advanced Designated Safeguarding Lead eLearning self-paced courses are designed to be compliant, to maximise learning potential and to be time and cost effective.
Safeguarding Support’s courses are ideal for educational settings and safeguarding practitioners looking for flexible access to quality Designated Safeguarding Lead training. Our self-paced online courses offer:
Learn at your own pace
Learners can work through the course at their own pace, either at home or in their workplace, reducing the need to find role cover and pay overtime or travel costs. This means these courses offer excellent value for money in over-stretched budgets!
There are many e-Learning DSL courses available at varying costs per learner. We believe ours is different as it not only gives learners all the same content and support as our highly acclaimed face-to-face or live virtual courses, it also provides learners with email access to ask a question or request clarification on any of the content by emailing directly one of our friendly and approachable team members who will simplify safeguarding and offer support.
In order to provide MAT’s, governors, schools, senior leaders and practitioners with assurance and evidence learning and understanding of duties and responsibilities, there is a final assessment with a required pass rate of a minimum of 80%.
Access to our courses is flexible and easy! Courses are accessible through via desktop, a laptop, tablet or any other mobile device, at any time.
