Safeguarding in Education







How Online Training Works

SAFE operates a training credits system where organisations can take advantage of volume discounts by purchasing a number of credits that they can then allocate to courses as required. Credits do not expire and can be used by allocating them to individuals in the establishment at any time. Should individuals leave the organisation having not started the allocated course SAFE re-credits the organisation with the unused course. SAFE supports its clients via a number of channels, including an online real-time interactive chat tool, email and telephone during normal office hours.

Administrators can track all staff progress at any time and also download staff training records in Excel for their Single Central Staff Record ready for Ofsted inspections

1 training credit = 1 training course.

When you click 'Buy Now' simply change the number of credits to the number of courses you require. For example, if you require only standard child safeguarding as do the majority of staff, then a single credit per employee will suffice. If you are the designated lead or deputy you will require two credits to take both standard child safeguarding and leading on child safeguarding. If in doubt call us on 01379-871091. Every member of staff also needs to take annual eSafety training and SAFE's online version of this course can be purchased directly from the website.
