Bespoke E-learning Courses

Short Course Programme

We offer a wide range of accessible courses for the whole children’s workforce. Our courses are informative and user friendly. Feedback has shown that this learning develops practice and can improve outcomes for children and young people. They provide a simple platform to gain that important extra knowledge and are a must for everyone working with vulnerable children and young people.

We also have a number of equally effective courses aimed to supplement training for those working in adult social care. These cover a variety of topics, including Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults, and there are many more courses in development for the coming year.

Child Protection

The need for high-quality child protection training has never been greater. Our online safeguarding courses provide a straightforward and flexible way to undertake this crucial training at two levels. These courses are essential for everyone whose work brings them into contact with children in any capacity.
