Who’s this for?

This Devon Safeguarding Children Partnership recognised Group 5 training is for the not for profit children and young people’s workforce who have particular responsibilities in relation to advising and supporting other staff (paid/unpaid) who may have safeguarding concerns, who have the responsibility to receive and refer safeguarding information. This also includes self-employed ‘stand-alone’ practitioners who do not work within an organisation (ie childminders, private tutors, etc).

This is what others have said about the course:

  • The training has put us in a better position to provide improved safeguarding protection.

  • It has allowed me to take on the Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO) role for my organisation supporting both my colleagues and the children and young people we work for/with. 

  • I have gained a greater wealth of knowledge within the staff team.

  • it will allow me to ensure that I relay the correct information to my team and the groups we support.

  • Being able to effectively support and protect young people in all circumstances or know who to refer to.

  • Dan and Tom worked well together and I  liked the opportunity to hear from others in the breakout exercises.

  • A difficult subject, handled efficiently!
