Managers with a lead or designated professional role for safeguarding.
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.
If in doubt, reach out and we will be able to clarify what this equivalent level of training is.
What is the difference between face-to-face and live virtual training options?
As far as possible, our Designated Safeguarding Lead training is as close to being the same regardless of delivery method as they 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 courses available so you don’t have to miss out on being able to access our courses.
Do I need this training for my role?
This training is a statutory requirement for all members of your staff who are a named member of your Designated Safeguarding team. The requirement is to complete this training and renew at least once every 2 years – alongside annual safeguarding update training and 3 yearly Safeguarding Awareness training.
Will I receive a certificate?
You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions, and we will also send a copy of this certificate to your organisation. Designated Safeguarding Lead Training with ECP is CPD certified. 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?
The maximum number of delegates that can attend this training course is 20.
If you have more than 20 delegates who need this training, please contact us in advance.
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. Bookings are not confirmed until you have received this as we may have questions we need to ask you or the date you request may not be available.
If you would like to contact us to check availability or ask any further questions before completing the booking form, please call us on 01727 808340 or via the chat function on the website.
All availability is managed on a first come first served basis and we cannot reserve dates, so by completing the booking form quickly you are most likely to get your preferred date.
What information will I need in order to make a booking?
To complete our booking form, we will need to know how many delegates will be accessing the training, which date you would like the training to be delivered, and invoicing details of how payment will be made.
Once the booking form is submitted, we will contact you if we have any further questions.
