What level training is this course?
Since the implementation of Safeguarding Partnerships, most sectors have moved away from using the term ‘levels’. The expectation is that you will undertake training which is relevant to the role you take in the organisation.
For example: Governor Training – KCSIE guidance advises that governing bodies must ensure they comply with their duties under legislation. Completing our Safeguarding for Governors Training supports governing bodies to understand these duties and best practice recommends renewing this training once every 2 years.
What is the difference between face-to-face, live virtual, and pre-recorded training options?
As far as possible, our Governor Training is as close to being the same as it can be! All the required content is covered to the highest standard, and we aim to keep as much interaction and engagement in all of our sessions as we do in our face-to-face training.
Face-to-face is our preferred method of training, but we know this is not always possible so have made our live virtual and pre-recorded courses available so you don’t have to miss out on being able to access our courses.
I struggle to get all of my Governors 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 Governor Training – as well as other vital courses – via our training platform throughout the academic year.
Governors 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 to this training for my role in school?
KCSIE guidance advises that governing bodies must ensure they comply with their duties under legislation. Completing our Safeguarding for Governors Training supports governing bodies to understand these duties and best practice recommends renewing this training once every 2 years.
Will I receive a Certificate?
You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. Governor Training with ECP is certified for you and your School’s single central training record. 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 many people can attend the training?
Our face-to-face training numbers vary from course to course, and also take into consideration the size of the space we will be delivering the training in. The size of groups can vary from as small as 2 delegates to large groups of 200+. At this time, we are asking schools to ensure training spaces adhere to COVID guidelines, for more information please click here.

Fantastic course, which helped improve my knowledge of the legislation which influences how we approach safeguarding. Very informative session, covering the full breadth of the safeguarding in schools remit. Very engaging and interactive.
Adeyfield Academy Delegate
Considering it was 2 hours it went very quickly - lots of information - it didn't feel that long.
Monken Hadley Delegate
I thought the training was well delivered, succinct, understandable and comprehensive. It is difficult to deliver Safeguarding training to governors but I found this very appropriate for such a mixed audience.
