Training for Education Settings

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.

All training from the Local Authority in Sheffield follows the current national guidance and the local Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) guidance. These documents are available on the right side of this page.

This section outlines the safeguarding children training available from the Quality Assurance and Involvement Service (QAIS), Sheffield City Council and the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) for Sheffield education settings.

If you follow the training pathway below or in the mustard column on the right of this page you should find the relevant courses and application forms in each section. All school staff in Early Years and Foundation Stage should follow this training pathway.
