Our training courses

Looking for something more in-depth? Using our network of trainers we provide courses either virtually or face to face providing that greater level of detail.

Welcome to the our home page for face to face training provided by Safeguarding Network.

Everything has been designed to meet the requirements of settings working with children and young people and all our courses are available to both members and non-members. Choosing a course will take you to the course specific page which will explain some more about the content, objectives, trainer, dates/times available and the price. Members do receive a discount and it is sometimes worth considering joining if you are looking to book more than one place on a course. If you would like to discuss membership please get in touch. If you cannot make the date/times published you can register your interest and we will contact you when new dates/times are announced.

We ensure that all training courses published here are delivered in line with the latest government guidance around the pandemic and we can provide them on commissioned basis if you have a group of staff wanting to complete a course, please contact us to discuss further as we may be able to arrange a bespoke course for you. If you are looking for something you cannot see listed, please fill out this form and a member of our team will be in touch to discuss your requirements.

What is Safeguarding Network

Safeguarding Network was founded in 2017 by John Woodhouse & Andrew Martin. Two social workers, with over 40 years combined experience in working with children and young people. They were concerned about the increasing requirement on education settings to fill the void left by decreasing social care budgets, with little by way of support particularly when something is not deemed to meet the social care thresholds. The role of designated safeguarding lead is often in addition to an already busy work day, and the requirement of Keeping Children Safe in Education is to ensure that staff are “regularly updated” is significant.

Safeguarding Network is raising safeguarding standards across a whole range of settings from Early Years through to Further Education and Apprenticeship / Training Providers. We provide a robust and systematic approach to in-house training, building confidence and capacity in safeguarding teams reducing the burden of this additional responsibility. Everything we do is to support our members and to ensure the safety of children and young adults that they support and we continue to work collaboratively in meeting those requirements.
