About the Course

Every school has a duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It’s essential that child protection and safeguarding leads have a strong understanding of their responsibilities towards keeping children safe and are aware of the challenges they might face in implementing best practice processes and procedures.

This Essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand your key responsibilities as the lead for child protection or safeguarding in your school.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Developed by Robin Watts, international safeguarding expert, the course is split into five modules. The course consists of learning through video modules, completion of tasks, further reading and viewing external resources. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
