New online Safeguarding training. Keeping young people safe is our number one priority, that’s why we’ve listened to your feedback and developed a new online Mandatory Safeguarding training module. You’ll only need to complete it if you need to complete your ongoing safeguarding for the first time after Module 1 or your safeguarding training is out of date. We’ve also extended the roles that can validate your learning to include Line Managers and deputies. You can find out more about the updates and complete the module here.
