This Designated Safeguarding Lead course is suitable for anyone who works frequently with children and who holds a management, supervisory or designated child protection role in settings such as alternative education provisions, academies, universities, charities, places of worship, sports clubs, leisure centres and GP and healthcare practices.
This online Designated Safeguarding Lead course will teach you more about what the role involves and will help you to understand the safeguarding process in more detail. The course uses a variety of written text and interactive exercises.
