All staff with regular child contact
We are only providing 'virtual' training due to the Covid-19 pandemic - please see the details below.
The Training Pathway for all staff with regular contact with children and young people in education settings is:
- Safeguarding Children Induction (from DSL/S onsite)
- Safeguarding in Education e-learning
- Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training
Safeguarding Children Induction (from DSL/D onsite):
This is required for all staff and volunteers, including clerical & business support, Heads, teachers, ancillary, support and pastoral staff using as a minimum the Safeguarding Children Induction Pack, Sept 20A
It should be delivered face-to-face by the Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputy (DSL/D) to individuals or groups, at the beginning of their employment.
This training does not replace the Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training.
Safeguarding in Education e-learning:
This free course is for staff and volunteers working in an education setting. It is a useful introduction to safeguarding but does not replace the Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training. We have agreed for this course to be used in settings whilst the Basic training is made available virtually - see below.
The course will take an estimated 2 hours and can be completed in sections.
The course considers key legislation, signs of abuse and neglect, safe working practices, concerns about a child or young person, and early intervention. It will also introduce some current issues including Child Sexual Exploitation, Female Genital Mutilation and Prevent.
To apply, please use this link for the self-registration process.
Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training:
For all staff in education settings who have regular contact with children and young people. The Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) requires staff to complete this face to face training every 3 years.
'Basic' Safeguarding Children in Education Training is now available 'virtually' for whole-settings - please use this application form to request: Whole-setting Basic Safeguarding Children in Education Training Request Form, March 21A
'Virtual' training is similar to face-to-face training but with 'blended' delivery from a 'virtual' trainer and in-house exercises. Staff will need access to a computer from your setting or their home.
