The aim of this training is to give managers who manage staff that have safeguarding responsibilities the knowledge and understanding of what is needed to ensure staff are trained, supported and safeguarding concerns are dealt with in the correct way.

This is NOT a Safeguarding Designated Lead (DSL) Course. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) will need additional Level 3 training. All Managers will need to have completed their Level 2 Safeguarding Awareness training in order to under safeguarding and manage staff effectively.

As a manager you need to know that the staff who work with children and/or adults are safe, you do not need to be an expert, but you do need a working knowledge of safeguarding. You need to ensure that staff are trained, supported and safeguarding concerns are dealt with in the correct way.
