Please choose the module most appropriate to your role:

The Core Module is aimed at those who work directly with children and young people.  They will have some organisational responsibility in relation to Safeguarding Children.

The Foundation Module is more appropriate for those in a paid or voluntary capacity who may have contact with children and young people but do not work directly with them.

Both courses cover similar material but the Core Module deals with the subject in more in depth as appropriate for the increased level of contact with children and families.  Core level training uses images of children with injuries to support learning which some learners may find disturbing.

How does e-learning work?

Each Module has a number of interactive learning screens, learner challenges, tracking and on-line assessment.  There is a certificate for successful applicants.  The training takes approximately two hours to complete – some people will do it more quickly and others may take longer.  You can do it in stages and save your work.

What equipment is needed to access the modules?

All that is needed is access to a computer that has an internet connection.  The system has been optimised to allow minimum access time, but a broadband connection is preferable.  The modules have been developed using Flash technology and a Flash Player needs to be installed on the computer. (You will get this automatically).

Important

Please note that this method of training is just an alternative to face to face training. As with all child protection training we advise that you discuss learning and gain support after the course if necessary.
