Designated Safeguarding Lead Refresher training for schools DSL refresher training for schoolsThe Designated Safeguarding Lead role is vital to keeping children safe. This Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) refresher training for schools course provides Designated Safeguarding Leads and their deputies with the opportunity to refresh and update their knowledge of the requirements of the role, as required by the Department of Education’s statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2021).

The course provides delegates with information on updates to legislation, local procedures and inspection criteria relevant to the responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead. It also covers key learning from both local and national Serious Case Reviews and Child Safeguarding Practices Reviews.

DSL Training Refresher for Schools and Colleges course content

This is a six-hour course and consists of four modules. The content of each module is as follows;

Module 1 – Refresh your knowledge of legislation and different types of abuse

  • This module refreshes the understanding of the relevant safeguarding legislation and the different types of abuse that may be encountered and their possible signs and causes. This includes an update on the broader risks that children and young people now face, such as radicalisation, ‘honour’ based violence, ‘peer on peer’ abuse and ‘County lines’.

Module 2 – An update on changes to statutory guidance and how these might impact your role.

  • This module will look at the recent changes made to statutory documents and raise awareness of any new information that has been issued for September 2021.

Module 3 – Revisiting the role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead

  • This module will revisit the specific requirements of the DSL role, and identify where each delegate may be able to develop their own approach to fulfilling their responsibilities.

Module 4 – Internal and external procedures

  • This final module will look at both the internal and external procedures that the DSL will need to follow to ensure that they carry out their statutory role in an effective way.
