“ As a school we are passionate about safeguarding all of the pupils in our care. It is the most important job that we do as staff in the teaching profession. In order to make certain that all of the DfE legislation is adhered to, and to ensure that we are providing the best possible practice within school, it is vitally important that everyone involved in the supervision and care of the students have all the information at hand and understand their individual responsibilities with regards to safeguarding.
The safeguarding training courses available through membership of SSS Learning enable our staff to access the latest information through online learning, and eliminates the need to bring in external tutors and consultants to present to them. The fact that staff have to show complete understanding of the topic matter by answering questions on the content of the courses they have studied in order to be awarded a CPD certificate, gives the school great confidence that the learning has been successful. This is not the case at the end of a presentation given by an external tutor. The safeguarding training courses available are appropriate and pitched at the right level to be interesting and informative at the same time. It is extremely useful for the staff to be able to leave a course mid-session and re-join at a convenient time in their busy workload to finish it off. Being a DSL it is important to collate and view the progress of staff accessing their individual courses and to this end the administrative function is invaluable.
SSS Learning safeguarding training is a cost effective means by which safeguarding training is completed, and allows full compliance to be evidenced for Inspection purposes.
We fully recommend schools to become members of this excellent provision and take away the concerns and worries of not knowing what staff know. It is very easy to monitor learning and ultimately be confident that you are compliant in your provision for safeguarding children. ”
