Key Skills Series - Safeguarding Children

Aside from personal development and academic success, our top priority as educators must always be to keep children safe - in school but also within their home environment. “Safeguarding” may be an emotionally draining part of our job, but it is probably the most important.

  • Easily accessible introduction to safeguarding
  • Supportive delivery
  • For newer employees but also line managers / mentors

About this course

One of the most serious aspects of an educator’s role is to safeguard children - the umbrella term for noticing, noting and sharing concerns to protect children from harm, neglect and other forms of abuse. This course - part of our Key Skills in Educational Settings series - provides you with a short overview of safeguarding law and practice. By watching this session you will explore:

  • Key terminology in “safeguarding”
  • What your responsibilities are - whatever your role in the school
  • Scenarios to help you understand what it looks like in practice


  • NQTs, RQTs, and other staff who are new to working in schools
  • Teachers and TAs, as a ‘refresher’ between statutory safeguarding training
  • NQT mentors, line managers, senior leaders
