Quick Exit

All staff with regular child contact

For the academic year 2021-2 we will be delivering a full VIRTUAL safeguarding children training programme to allow the training to continue whatever restrictions may or may not be in place due to the epidemic. Dates coming soon.

The Training Pathway (available in the mustard box on the right of this page) for all staff with regular contact with children and young people in education settings is:

  • Safeguarding Children Induction (from DSL/S onsite)
  • Safeguarding in Education e-learning
  • Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training

Safeguarding Children Induction (from DSL/D onsite):

This is required for all staff and volunteers, including clerical & business support, Heads, teachers, ancillary, support and pastoral staff using as a minimum the Safeguarding Children Induction Pack, Sept 21

It should be delivered face-to-face by the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputy (DSL/D) to individuals or groups, at the beginning of their employment.

This training does not replace the Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training.

Safeguarding in Education e-learning:

This free course is for staff and volunteers working in an education setting. It is a useful introduction to safeguarding but does not replace the Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training. 

The course will take an estimated 2 hours and can be completed in sections.

The course considers key legislation, signs of abuse and neglect, safe working practices, concerns about a child or young person, and early intervention. It will also introduce some current issues including Child Sexual Exploitation, Female Genital Mutilation and Prevent.

To apply, please use this link for the self-registration process.

Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training:

For all staff in education settings who have regular contact with children and young people. The Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) requires staff to complete this face to face training every 3 years.

'Virtual' training is similar to face-to-face training but with 'blended' delivery from a 'virtual' trainer and in-house exercises. Staff will need access to the internet from your setting or their home.
