By the end of the course you will have:
— Developed your understanding of the role and responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
— Gained a practical understanding of relevant law and statutory guidance

The training is highly participative, and you are encouraged to bring questions and examples from your own professional practice. It will be informed throughout by relevant law, guidance, procedures, theory, child safeguarding practice reviews (formerly serious case reviews) and current research, and will be supported by a comprehensive handout pack.
This one-day programme will provide you with the essential skills and knowledge to be effective as a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
This session is for new Designated Safeguarding Leads, who have not received training in this area previously.
Due to the current social distancing restrictions in place in light of COVID-19, the CSCP has worked with our experienced trainers to ensure that safeguarding training can still be made available to multi-agency partners. Although, there will be some changes for all delegates to note prior to booking:
— Delegates need to apply to join the course.
— Delegates will be sent the link for the handout pack two working days before the advertised training date, instructions will be provided.
— We have made the handout pack available across 2 days to help fit in with your changed working arrangements.
— Delegates are expected to work through the handouts, prior to the virtual session.
Before the training, we expect delegates to:
— Dedicate sufficient time to work through the handouts prior to the virtual session.
— Not share amend or adapt anything from the handouts, the copyright of these documents is held by the trainer.
— Please ensure you have the correct software on your device to join the virtual session.
— Please join in the virtual session earlier than advertised to allow for any IT issues.
Failure of any of the above will result in the delegate not receiving their certificate of accreditation.
