FAQs

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.


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 Child Protection Awareness training.


Will I receive a certificate?

You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. 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 soon as dates are released that you can attend.


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 5 delegates who need this training, we recommend you book this course for your organisation as this will work out more cost effective than paying per person.
