Training and development

This page is free to all

There is specific training available for designated safeguarding leads. This training can provide you with new knowledge and skills and the opportunity to network with others in a similar role to you. You should update your training every two years.

You might also want to consider if there are any training areas which might help you understand specific safeguarding issues. This will depend on the risks your organisation may encounter.

As well as training, consider how to stay up to date on all things safeguarding. You will find local safeguarding boards, partnerships or networks focused on safeguarding children and on safeguarding adults at risk that can be a great source of information. You may also find there are networking groups related to the type of activity your organisation promotes.
