Training and Information Events

Safeguarding Support Limited is able to support your setting or organisation with all their safeguarding training needs.

Our whole setting Safeguarding and Child Protection Awareness Training is regularly updated in line with the latest legislation and best practice guidance. The sessions are designed to be fully flexible and tailored for individual sector needs, whether that be education, early years, sport, VCS or organisation. Delivery of the session is on your site and at a time that meets your requirements -morning, afternoon, twilight or a whole day. This allows all staff and volunteers to be trained together, ensuring they all receive the same content, understanding and brings them and the setting fully up-to-date with the latest statutory guidance, Keeping children safe in education (2019), Working together to safeguard children (2018), Early Years Statutory Framework (2017) etc.


NEW for 2019 – we are excited to announce that we have introduced two further options for our safeguarding and child protection training.

The first is our ‘enhanced safeguarding and child protection’ session. This includes an online participant assessment which supports MAT’s, governing bodies and proprietors to meet their responsibilities under Keeping children safe in education. Our assessment pass rate is 80%, any staff/volunteer not achieving the pass rate will be identified and flagged up to the above stakeholders, allowing them to carry out an internal review of further support requirements. Therefore, ensuring that those responsible for managing safeguarding within their settings, have a mechanism in place to identify any areas of concern or required learning, as well as, assisting staff to understand and discharge their safeguarding role and responsibilities.

Option 2 – following requests from our smaller early years setting e.g. childminders, preschools etc. who are not big enough to commission an onsite safeguarding and child protection training session for their teams or can only attend out of normal working hours. We have introduced ‘public safeguarding and child protection’ sessions. These cost-effective sessions are available for single and/or small multiples of attendees to book onto – therefore meeting the statutory training requirements under Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage.

If  you are looking for Designated Safeguarding Lead or Early Years Safeguarding Lead training, we have it covered:

  • New to Role (2 day) **                                   
  • 2 Yearly update (1 day) **                             
  • Annual refresher update (3 hour)
  • Early Years Safeguarding Lead (1 day) **

And not forgetting Safeguarding Responsibilities for Trust and Governing Boards (2 hour)

All ** sessions highlighted above include an online assessment to evidence participants understanding of roles and responsibilities and are available for delivery on your site or in local off-site locations.
