Advanced INITIAL Safeguarding Children in Education:

In 2021-2 we will be delivering this training virtually to allow the training to continue whatever restrictions may or may not be in place due to the epidemic. Participants will need access to the internet and a room with privacy.

Before you complete this training you must have completed the face-to-face Basic/Whole-School Safeguarding Children in Education Training with Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) within the last 3 years or the e-learning Safeguarding in Education since March 2020.

To take on the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputy role this 2 day training must be completed with the SCSP through the Quality Assurance & Involvement Service (QAIS). If you have trained in a different Local Authority you must complete this training with the SCSP to ensure you understand Sheffield safeguarding policies and procedures.

This course is also useful for pastoral and support staff with safeguarding responsibilities.

The course programme will consider legislation and practice guidance to understand the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead and deputy and to develop confidence to work in partnership with other agencies and professionals to support children and their families with safeguarding & child protection issues. 

The course is free for maintained schools and academies. There is a charge for 'free' and independent school staff attending.
