Safeguarding Children Designated Lead Person

 Registration is closed for this event
This online training will give you a basic understanding of the role and responsibilities of a Designated Safeguarding Lead Person for an organisation working with vulnerable children and young people. Cost: £25 per participant


Who is this training for?

If you’re new to the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead Person for an organisation that works with children and young people, this training is for you.

Before registering for this training, please ensure that you’ve attended our Introduction to Safeguarding Children and Young People training (or equivalent introductory/refresher training) within the last three years.

The role of Designated Safeguarding Lead is particularly relevant when working with children and young people, given that the safeguarding children referral process is a multi-agency approach. Therefore, this session focuses on working with children and young people.

If your organisation works with adults only, this training may still be relevant to you, as working with adults involves the consideration of children who may be at risk. However, the referral processes are led by the Adult Safeguarding Team.

What will I learn from this training?

This training will cover:

  • Referral processes and the Child Protection Pathway
  • Signs of safety and Initial Child Protection Conferences (ICPCs)
  • How and when to share information with other organisations
  • How to deal with allegations involving staff
  • Key policies and guidance

You’ll be issued a certificate of attendance following the completion of this training.

Who will be delivering this training?
