Bespoke Safeguarding Training for Early Years Practitioners

The registration date for this event has past. You cannot make bookings for this event online.

Audience: New or prospective Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) for safeguarding and child protection from all Early Years settings; including owners/managers of PVI settings wishing to broaden their knowledge and ability to support safeguarding systems. 

Brief aim: To support all those who work with children in all types of Early Years settings in fulfilling their duties related to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children.  This will equip senior staff with the information, knowledge and understanding to undertake the responsibilities of the DSL role when working with young children as the course has been designed specifically for colleagues working in this setting, tailored to the scenarios and circumstances found when working within the Early Years sector.  The approach will empower managers to ensure best practice is adhered to, following statutory guidance with a focus on sharing practical examples of how to embed safeguarding at the heart of the organisation’s work.

Impact of the course: Those leading on safeguarding children will be able to fulfil their duty in recognising signs and responding to disclosures of abuse and neglect, ensuring that the requirements for OfSTED and the EYFS Statutory Framework are met.  This will benefit staff and the reputation of each setting and DSLs will leave with increased confidence that they have the tools to embed consistency of approach across their organisation. 

By the end of the training participants will have:

  • An understanding of the safeguarding role, responsibilities and requirements of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Increased confidence in recognising signs and responding to disclosures of abuse and neglect
  • Greater knowledge of national and local documentation, procedures and requirements for record keeping
  • Considered issues specific to non-compulsory school age children including working with parents/carers, non-verbal clues and disclosures and monitoring attendance patterns
  • Knowledge of protocols for confidentiality and sharing information between agencies
  • Knowledge of procedures for dealing with allegations against staff and good practice in reducing the risk of such allegations
  • Up to date information on issues of current concern, including recommendations from serious case reviews
