Who is the training for?

Front-line safeguarding individuals working directly with children and young people and those from a range of other sectors, where their work brings them into contact with children and families.

Why is it useful?

Safeguarding training for individuals is useful because it focuses on contemporary practical issues placed in the context of young peoples lives. The content of each course is designed to help you develop your existing skills and abilities as well as to provide you with a credible insight into emerging trends and themes. If you work with children, young people or vulnerable adults we have a course that will both challenge, educate and empower you.
