Are you...

the DSL or Deputy DSL for your school?

have you taken your two year training update?

KCSIE 2020 Annex B: p98: "The designated safeguarding lead and any deputies should undergo training to provide them with the knowledge and skills required to carry out the role. The training should be updated every two years."

Graffham Consulting Ltd, providing school Safeguarding training since 2007

"...The training is quick, easy to understand, interesting, straight to the point, without fillers or unnecessary 'stuff' like in some other courses, quick and helpful..."

As I speak with headteachers and school senior teams up and down the UK, I ask them what their main concerns?

They tell me that...

"one of the most worrying things is making sure that staff are following key school safeguarding policies, that they know what to do, have the latest guidance from KCSIE and the Department for Education, and that their certificates are up to date."

It's with this in mind that we present this online course. It's quick, straight to the point and gives up-to-date knowledge. We've been training Safeguarding since 2007 working with state and independent schools in the UK and globally.
