We are delighted that you want to increase your knowledge and understanding of Safeguarding for Children by enrolling on one of our e-learning courses. As you clearly appreciate, it is vital that everyone working with children or with adults who are parents or carers understands their responsibility to promote the welfare of children and young people and to recognise and report any indicators of abuse or neglect.
You can view a list of over 50 online courses (all at Level 1 as defined by the Safeguarding Children Boards) here and can register for access to the courses yourself (see below).
Courses are free to members and partners of the HSCB, IOWSCB and to voluntary organisations. There is a list of organisations in the “department page”. Once you have started your on-line learning course you must complete it within 4 weeks; if you fail to do so your line manager may be charged a £25 non-completion fee.
How do I register and access the courses?
Once you have registered via the link below you will receive an email and password within a matter of minutes. You can then log in to your Learner Record straight away and request your course(s) via your ‘Requested Learning Tab’ - all requested courses will then appear instantly on your ‘Active Learning Tab’.
How long will the learning take?
Each course takes approximately 1-3 hours to complete with a short test at the end. If you have passed, then you will be able to print a certificate of completion. You do not have to complete the training all at once but can dip in and out of the module at work or at home and the system will monitor your progress. Remember, however, that you should complete the course in less than 4 weeks to ensure that you get the full benefit of the learning.
