To help you do this we can provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to ensure that your school or college meets the best child protection and safeguarding standards in the UK. Read more about our safeguarding in education team.
We offer a wealth of expertise in child protection to support you in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of your pupils or students.
We offer comprehensive training programmes that cover a range of topics, from basic child protection awareness through to designated persons and specialist professional development. Our training programmes can be taken at our centres across the UK or through distance learning.
We can also offer bespoke training to meet specific needs of your school or college and deliver it locally.
Our consultancy service offers tailored advice from a team of leading professionals. We can work closely with you to identify areas for development, such as child protection policies and procedures, bullying policies and procedures or developing your pastoral support and welfare systems.
We have publications and resources that can help you to discuss complex problems like bullying with your students, and raise these issues in the curriculum. Our training packs can help you share child protection knowledge with your staff consistently and effectively.
