Designated Safeguarding Lead Training

Safeguarding and child protection is everyone’s responsibility. In order to promote best practice in safeguarding, it is recommended that all settings should designate an adult, known as the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) to have lead responsibility for safeguarding.

The DSL should act as a source of advice and support to staff and volunteers on matters of safety and welfare and decide if a concern should be referred to the local authority or police. This one-day course aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of child abuse and safeguarding issues that can put children and adults at risk, how to refer concerns and what to expect when a referral is made.

Training Content

This training will enable the Designated Safeguarding Lead to understand their role in ensuring a high standard of safeguarding within their centre and how to act on and, if required, investigate concerns. This includes dealing with police and local authority as well as procedures in dealing with complaints regarding staff and volunteers.

Attendees will receive a certificate after participating for the full duration of the course and undertaking a short post-training assessment.

Duration of course: One day

Cost: £995 + VAT for up to 12 delegates
