Level 2 Safeguarding Children CPD

Our Level 2 Safeguarding Children course is essential if you work frequently with children and their families and ensures that you have an up-to-date knowledge of risks to children, safeguarding trends, child protection procedures and policy updates.

This course will enable participants to identify vulnerability, concerns and abuse in a timely and effective manner, understand what to do if a child discloses abuse, report concerns, recognise risks, feel confident in understanding the process after a referral has been made and apply best practice guidelines.


  • Thursday 24th June 2021 – 9am to 12.30pm

Child Exploitation CPD

For many years, child protection in the UK has been based around safeguarding children from harm within their families and homes or, less commonly, from adults in a position of trust. Recent years have made professionals more aware of new hazards to children that are mainly from outside these settings.

Child Sexual Exploitation is increasingly being recognised as a common risk, and is often links to other forms of exploitation such as County Lines, Knife Crime, Trafficking, and Gangs.

A report by the Children’s Commissioner for England highlighted that the temporary closure during COVID-19 of resources such as schools, youth centres, children’s centres and clinics removed a vital safety net for vulnerable children. This is likely to have increased the number of children being drawn into sexual and other exploitation.

Our Child Exploitation course will provide participants with essential information about the exploitation of children and young people.


  • Thursday 1st July 2021 – 9am to 12.30pm

Domestic Abuse CPD

UK domestic abuse helplines report surge in calls during lockdown-experts in the field have warned that abusers and their partners having to self-isolate together at home may lead to an increase in abusive behaviour and violence due to the pressure cooker effect of being trapped indoors.

Our Domestic Abuse course will help participants to recognise and respond effectively where domestic abuse is present, help identify and understand what factors increase risk and help identify ways to reduce these risks and provide support.


  • To develop an awareness of the different aspects DVA can take
  • To be aware of the impact of DVA on victims and their children
  • To consider how to respond appropriately and to signpost to the relevant services

Safeguarding CPD Testimonials

“This was a great course to help give a certain level of understanding into the terminology and research concerning domestic abuse.”

“Excellent training insightful and knowledgeable course made easy to follow and implement. Lots of training material given, to keep you informed.”

“Thank you for your time and efforts. Very useful information and a chance to get together and explore a sensitive but highly current and important subject that appears as part of too many lives. I think it is more a 1day (maybe more) training subject, however having the slides (and other resources coming) when read, really allows further learning and enriches the three hours offered yesterday.”

“This was extremely informative. The trainer was calm, professional, acknowledged all answers with care and showed empathy. Three hours whizzed by. Lovely group of people to work with.”

“An excellently delivered course that kept us fully focussed with lots of useful breakout discussion groups, full of helpful knowledge and delivered in a way made us feel safe but challenged at the same time, leaving us better equipped to recognise a domestic abuse situation and the effect it can have on children we are working with. Thank you.”

“A comprehensive, well thought out and highly delivered course. Would definitely recommend it.”
