Who is Safeguarding Essentials 2019 for?
It's specifically written for Designated Senior Leaders and School Leaders in England who need to meet their annual safeguarding training responsibilities.
It covers staff who work in any educational setting - not just schools.
Will it really cover everything my staff need to know to meet our annual safeguarding obligations?
Yes. Faye fully covers every area identified in the latest government guidance. All you have to do is press play!
Do I need to be DSL trained to deliver this training?
No, but it does help if there is someone with DSL level training present who can answer any questions specific to your school and its safeguarding policies.
Is this as good as having you train my teaching staff in person?
Not quite - for a start, you can't ask Faye questions.
But with Safeguarding Essentials, you pay once and get lifetime access to the material, so you can re-use it as often as you want. So when new members of the staff join the team, you're free to use the materials to train them too.
This relieves you from the pressure of personally delivering safeguarding training over and over again throughout the year.
Do my staff have to train as a group? Can they complete the training individually?
Yes, the training can be completed by individuals, working through the videos and tasks by themselves.
How does the training work?
It's a series of training videos, interspersed with group tasks.
Faye will explain clearly what each task involves, and even include a timer so your staff know how much time they have left.
As facilitator, you'll occasionally be asked to record answers from the group on flipchart paper.
How do I get ready for the training?
Included in the training is a facilitator's handbook. It's a step-by-step checklist of what you need to get ready for the training.
It even includes a sign-in sheet, so you can record who attended the training.
Do I need to be technically minded to run the training?
No. If you can play an internet video with sound on a projector or interactive whiteboard, you have all the technical skills you need.
