The length of the courses are appropriate for the topics, and you can easily complete each module in one sitting. It’s easy to navigate, with large and clear text throughout. The introduction explained the learning outcomes well. The tone of the course is informative with clear and reassuring language. Each section is in small and easy-to-understand chunks, but you get more information where you need it. There’s a good level of interactivity and a range of activities throughout. The additional resources are really useful, and the automated certificates are great.

Who is this eLearning For?

  • Our e-Learning courses offer individuals and organisations an essential introduction to the world of safeguarding.
  • We consider these courses to be the start of a learning journey.
  • Once you complete the course, you can access supplementary resources to help you reach the right level of training for your role.

Our courses are short and interactive, and you can complete them at your own pace.

Our eLearning courses are also relevant if you have a safeguarding responsibility and you want to assess your knowledge and awareness of safeguarding principles.
