Show that you take the safety and wellbeing of the children and young people you work with seriously with three days of essential training.

Working with children and young people is rewarding, but making sure their experience is a positive and enriching one can be a daunting responsibility. Our Essentials Package of three courses will give you everything you need to know in order to design and deliver projects to the highest professional standard, protecting you and the children and young people you work with.

Our expert trainers will guide you through all three courses: Equality and Diversity, Child Protection and Safeguarding, and Prevent. You will learn how to build in, rather than bolt-on, important safeguarding and inclusive policy and practice. You will be prepared and equipped for anything- safe in the knowledge that you have invested time to save time!

*Please note this course takes place across 3 dates from 10am-4:15pm on 16th May, 10th July and 25th September 2018.
