Safeguarding children training

about us

Safeguarding Children Training was set up by Richard Woodley to deliver Child Protection courses on behalf of Local Authorities. We now provide ‘best value’ learning solutions directly to a range of professional organisations including Schools, Childcare settings, Charities, Housing Associations and Transport providers.

our training courses

We focus on empowering practitioners to protect children from harm. Our trainers are experienced and qualified practitioners having worked within a variety of public service professions such as policing, teaching, social care, health and local government. Our learning philosophy incorporates a compassionate mind-based approach to ensure all learning fosters a safe, meaningful and collaborative experience for participants.

training schedule

We have developed a comprehensive programme of training, Universal, Targeted and Specialist (Levels 1-5), as well as Customised training, to meet organisations ‘Duty of Care’ to safeguard children. We specialise in using evidence-based best practice in all our courses.

Training cost from £27.50 (half day) and £55.00 (full day) per delegate.

We provide a range of face-to-face specialist training courses for anyone working or volunteering with children and young people. Courses are specifically designed to meet the learning needs of sector professionals including health, social services, education, police, LSCBs, charities, voluntary, community groups, housing, hospitality and leisure, as well as transport providers.

All training incorporates the requirements of the Children Acts 1989 and 2004 along with statutory guidance, ‘Keeping children safe in education’ and ‘Working together to safeguard children’.
