Designated Safeguarding Leads – Refresher/Update (Level 3)

18 may 2017 9.00 - 16.00
central London

Every educational establishment is required to appoint staff with a particular responsibility for safeguarding and child protection. They need to be able to take a lead in ensuring that relevant policies and protocols are up to date and that staff are aware of them

They are also the reference point for staff who have concerns about children and young people and will make the judgement concerning referral to outside agencies. This responsibility requires a well-grounded and confident understanding of current pastoral and safeguarding issues. It is expected that safeguarding leads will refresh and update their learning every two years.

Course Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • Refreshed and updated their knowledge about the role of the safeguarding lead
  • Developed their skills in knowing how best to advise staff about safeguarding and child protection concerns
  • Gained confidence in judging when and how to make effective referrals to statutory services

This course would be ideal for anyone who is responsible for the role of Designated Safeguarding lead in their setting
