We are a team of child protection and safeguarding training experts working to help people like you make a positive impact on the well-being of children.
Since 2006, we have developed and delivered a highly successful collaborative model of e-learning across the UK.
Our 88 strong membership includes over 60 Local Safeguarding Children Boards, the statutory agencies responsible for child protection at the local level.
In conjunction with these boards we have developed over 40 safeguarding and child protection courses that range from ‘Awareness of Child Abuse and Neglect’ to ‘Children’s and Young People’s Development’.
We provide e-learning courses to individuals, charities, schools, hospitals, private businesses, the police and local government.
