What level training is this course?
Since the implementation of Safeguarding Partnerships/Boards, 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/Trustee Training – KCSIE guidance advises that governing bodies must ensure they comply with their duties under legislation. Completing our Safeguarding for Governors/Trustee 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 self-paced training options?
As far as possible, our Governor/Trustee 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.
I struggle to get all of my Governors/Trustees available at one time to complete training, what is my best option?
ECP can make this course available for individuals as a recorded training resource. You can find the details for this on our courses for individuals page of our website.
For these courses, the price is per person and you can book multiple spaces for your governors/trustees on dates that suit them.
Alternatively, you can join ECP’s F.E. Safeguarding Society. By becoming a member with ECP, you can have unlimited access to a recorded version of Governor/Trustee Training – as well as other vital courses – via our training platform throughout the academic year.
Governors/Trustee’s 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
KCSIE guidance advises that governing bodies must ensure they comply with their duties under legislation. Completing our Safeguarding for Governors/Trustee 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 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.

Our live virtual delivery of Governor has no minimum number of attendees, maximum number of attendees depends on the size of your provision.

The presentation gave us all something to think about when it comes to safeguarding. The fill as you go action plan was a wonderful and innovative idea. I really enjoyed the training. The consultant answered all of my questions before I was able to ask them.
As the Safeguarding Governor it was a refresher for me - always important to keep updated on changes and for the whole governing body to understand our shared and yet individual responsibilities.
I have already had safeguarding training but never from a Governor's strategic perspective , so that was very helpful. Action plan had great ideas, I know the questions I need to ask now.
