Target Audience

This training is suitable for all members of staff (including leadership), within education settings.


Choose a date to suit you - the self-paced course will be available for you to complete within 4 weeks.


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.

What is the difference between face-to-face, live virtual, and self-paced training options?

As far as possible, our training is as close to being the same 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 no matter the delivery method.

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 self-paced version of Child Protection Awareness Training – 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! Find out more here.

Do I need this training for my role?

This training is a statutory requirement for all members of your staff community (Including leadership) to complete and renew at least once every 3 years – alongside annual safeguarding update training.

Will I receive a certificate?

You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. 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! If you know your training will be up for renewal then we recommend booking as soon as possible, however our self-paced training courses can be made available within 48 hours (if booking forms are submitted on a week day).

How many people can I book onto this training?

You can book as many delegates access to this course as you need, however if you have more than 10 delegates who need this training, we recommend you book this course for your organisation - avoiding capacity limitations – and this will work out more cost effective than paying per person. You can find more information on booking this course for your organisation here.
