About The Course

Annual Advanced Certificate in Child Protection and Safeguarding for Leaders (International Schools)

Every school has a duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It’s essential that child protection and safeguarding leads have a strong understanding of their responsibilities towards keeping children safe and are aware of the challenges they might face in implementing best practice processes and procedures.

This Essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand your key responsibilities as the lead for child protection or safeguarding in your school.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Developed by Robin Watts, international safeguarding expert, the course is split into five modules and encourages audience interaction to support and embed learning. There is a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence course completion.
