Is your Designated Lead Person fully up-to-date with their training?

If you are working with children and young people a good understanding of current safeguarding practice is essential. Make sure your knowledge is up-to-date.

We offer Designated Lead Person Induction and Refresher training at Group 4/5 level*. We have been working in Children’s Services for over 35 years, as Early Years Practitioners and Managers, Social Workers and Family Therapists, facilitators of Serious Case Reviews and chaired several Safeguarding Children Board sub-groups.

Which DSL is right for me?
*as identified by the London Safeguarding Children Partnership, “Competencies Still Matters: Safeguarding Training for all employees and volunteers” guide.
 

We've suspended in-person training until the end of June or even the Autumn Term.

In its place we're offering a Free Support and Advice Surgery, Online 'live' Designated Lead Person Training and  some Accredited Online Safer Recruitment training.

"I have lost count of the really poor, unrelatable training I have attended over the years and the thought of 2 days DSL training did not at first fill me with inspiration, but your approach, the course and the other delegates made for as really enjoyable few days. I felt as though I learned a great amount, met some good folks and was taught in an inclusive fashion, rather than being talked to, or at!"

Safeguarding training in London & the home counties


Our safeguarding training courses build incrementally from an awareness to an intermediate and advanced level. We provide courses for individual teams, for inter-disciplinary groups or in geographical areas either as a one-off or as a part of a longer professional learning journey, over several months or years. Most courses take place in central or outer London or the home counties such as Surrey.

All of our courses are highly participative. You can rely on us to make courses interesting, realistic and practical.
