Safeguarding Children in Education (E-learning)

Course Aim

It is a statutory requirement that all staff working with children receive appropriate child protection training.

Based on current local and national guidance, this online course aims to help protect children and young people by providing all staff, working with young people in an education setting, with safeguarding training.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • recognise the legislation and guidance that governs safeguarding children in education
  • identify safe working practices in education settings
  • recognise the importance of early intervention
  • recognise the signs of abuse and neglect
  • identify what to do if you have concerns about children
  • illustrate how safeguarding children works in practice.


This course has been created by award-winning e-learning designers to deliver the most effective learning experience.

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 training?

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).


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.
