How is this training delivered?

Our spotlights are offered as a pre-recorded training resource that will be shared with you via link that can be accessed by you and your team.

Full instructions of how to access our training platform will be sent to you and we will always be on hand to support you with any queries.

Our pre-recorded training is shared for a one-week period of your choice, and can be accessed at any time during the 7 days you have the training booked with us.

I struggle to get all of my staff available at one time to complete training, what is my best option?

You can join ECP’s Safeguarding Society. By becoming a member with ECP, you can have unlimited access to a recorded version of ALL of our spotlights – as well as other vital courses – via our training platform throughout the academic year.

Staff will then be able to log onto your membership portal and complete the training at a time that suits them – and you!

Do I need this training for my role?

The KCSIE guidance and Ofsted inspection framework stipulates that staff need to complete training on specific issues including CSE, CCE, Mental Health, Online Safety and Child on Child Abuse. These spotlights have been designed to ensure that your teams meet these requirements as well as empower you with the knowledge you need to respond with confidence while supporting your pupils.

Will I receive a Certificate?

You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. You need to ensure you are available and engaged for the full duration of the training session in order to receive your certificate.

How far in advance can I book the training?

You can book your training as far in advance as you like! Some times of the year are especially busy (E.G inset days) so we advise you book up to a year or more in advance, especially if there is a specific date and time you would like to secure. If you know your training will be up for renewal the sooner you get the training date confirmed the more likely ECP will have availability to deliver your training.

How do I book this training?

Our training is booked using the online booking form via the ‘BOOK NOW’ button on the Course tab of this page. Once completed, you will receive confirmation that your form has been submitted, then you will receive an email confirmation of your booking.
