‘Working together to safeguard Children’ (March 2015) places a duty on all employers to ensure that their staff are competent and confident in carrying out their responsibilities for safeguarding children and young people.
It is essential for anyone who works, or volunteers, in settings where they come into contact with children, to undertake Child Protection awareness training.
To recognise the importance of Safeguarding Child Protection issues all staff should undertake refresher training annually.
Our course will help enhance awareness and develop a culture of vigilance, develop understanding of the roles and functions of agencies, explaining who does what in protecting children.
We are committed to supporting employees who work alongside children regardless of their individual roles.
Minimum training requirements
It is the responsibility of the school/organisation to ensure that all staff and volunteers have access to adequate, suitable training to fulfil their role and responsibility to safeguard children. In line with best practice guidance, the local recommendation is that staff training should be delivered at least annually.
Schools must ensure that temporary staff are aware of the school’s procedures, who the DSL is, how to record a concern and their responsibility to safeguard children. It is up to your school/organisation to decide how this will be done in all instances.
