Me Learning - Safeguarding Children

IMPORTANT - This training must be completed within the past five years prior to participants attending LSCB training courses.

There are a number of e-learning modules that can be accessed for all professionals and volunteers who work or have contact with children, this includes workers who perform ‘Controlled Activities’ as defined by the ISA (see http://www.isa-gov.org.uk/PDF/VBS_Guidance.pdf (and workers who perform ‘Regulated Activities’ but have no anticipated contact with children (e.g., workers with the elderly).

These modules are free to all staff and volunteers within the BSCB and are suitable as a refresher, or induction for new staff as a basic introduction to safeguarding. They each take between 60 – 90 minutes to complete, but you can return to them repeatedly if unable to complete in one sitting and pick up at the point you left. Successfully complete the quiz at the end of the course and you will gain your certificate.

For those learners wishing to achieve Safeguarding Children, certificates will only be available on completion of all nine short modules contained within that course. Completion will also be registered in your CPD online record.
