In the United Kingdom and many other countries, schools with students under the age of 18 have a legal ‘duty of care’ to safeguard those students. Therefore it is compulsory for everyone working with the organisation to understand safeguarding and their responsibilities. You will be introduced to:

Clear and well structured
When you click on ‘complete quiz’ at the bottom of the page, if you haven’t properly finished it, it instructs you to complete the missing bits, but it doesn’t tell you what bits are missing!
Make sure you rectify this as, sometimes, one struggles to identify what remains to be completed.
informative & essential training in safeguarding
This training in Safeguarding (with Prevent), is well-presented, accessible, and informative. I felt the information I received was accurate and understandable so I was able to undertake the quizzes at the end of each section confidently.
