SAFE online training courses reflect the latest government guidance "Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015", the Care Act 2014 and comply with Ofsted and CQC requirements.
Our “Standard” courses are appropriate for all staff working with children, young people and/or adults at risk. For health staff, both levels one and two are covered as required by the Intercollegiate Safeguarding Children & Young People: roles and competencies for health care staff 2014.
SAFE Members gain an extra 10% discount against the prices shown on this page. Membership must be purchased and approved before this discount is available (usually 24 hours).
All courses are fully trackable online. SAFE's uniquely numbered certificates can be downloaded upon completion of a course, and also verified at any time online. Certificates are all stored online for both participants and administrators to download. Organisations can download staff training records (as an excel file) and copies of certificates at any time (in pdf format); ideal for any upcoming Ofsted or CQC inspection.
All SAFE online courses meet the educational criteria required for verifiable Continuing Professional Development under the General Dental Council Lifelong Learning Scheme (and the Standard Child Protection course by CET Optics) and represent 3 hours of verifiable CPD each.
Please Note: Neither Ofsted, nor CQC regard training courses in child protection and safeguarding children or in safeguarding vulnerable adults (now termed adults at risk) to be sufficient on their own. All organisations working with adults at risk and/or children and young people also require adult safeguarding policies and adult safeguarding procedures and/or child safeguarding policies and child protection procedures to be in place and up to date. All references and information required for organisations to create their own is available here on our website. We also offer proforma policies and procedures (updated when appropriate) free with SAFE Membership which can save many hours of work.
