The imperative for schools to source excellent quality safeguarding and child protection training so that all staff have the key knowledge, awareness and attitudes to support a school community ethos of safeguarding is crucial. The training provided by Services for Education is outstanding and we have been lucky to receive expert support from Lucie Welch in developing our programme of staff and Governor CPD. Lucie has worked with our school a number of times and this relationship as she gets to know us and how we work allows even more precise training to take place. From annual updates for staff and Governors to bespoke aspect specific training on LGBTQ+ awareness, child exploitation and domestic abuse and many more, the S4E team can design a course that suits your school needs. I highly recommend Services for Education if you are looking for excellent face to face or remote training in all aspects of safeguarding.
