Training for Education Settings
All face to face safeguarding training from QAIS and the SCSP is currently cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. Instead we are developing 'virtual' training courses, some of which will start from January 2021. We will email all DSL/Ds as these courses become available.
* Virtual Advanced Initial Safeguarding Children in Education Training dates are now available, please follow the course link below
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.
