The Bedford Borough Safeguarding Children Board, Central Bedfordshire Safeguarding Children Board and Luton Safeguarding Children Board (Safeguarding Bedfordshire) are delighted that you are applying for a Safeguarding Children course as it is vital that anyone in a paid or unpaid role and whether working with children and families, or solely working with adults who are parents or carers, understands the responsibility that they have to promote the welfare of children and young people and also recognise and report any indicators of abuse – physical, emotional, sexual or neglect.
Safeguarding Bedfordshire are pleased to announce that learners can now self-register for access to over 50 Safeguarding courses. To view all the available courses please click here. Once logged in please use the ‘Requested Learning Tab’ to request the new course you wish to carry out.
The courses are free of charge to all members and partners of Safeguarding Bedfordshire, and all voluntary and private organisations.
Once you start your on-line learning course you have 4 weeks to complete it. If you do not complete the course within 4 weeks your line manager may be charged for the cost of the course at £25 + VAT.
If you do not complete the course then the money spent has been wasted and your safeguarding learning need has not been met, so in the interest of yourself and all local services to children please complete the course within 4 weeks.
How long it will take
Once you have registered via the link below then you will receive an email and password within a matter of minutes. You can then login 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’. 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, you can dip in and out of the module, at work or at home and the system will monitor your progress.
