Designated Safeguarding Lead Refresher Training for Schools and Colleges

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 2020).

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.

This course can be delivered either at a venue with social distancing restrictions in place, or remotely via Zoom, to meet the needs of the setting.

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 – Recognising Abuse

  • In this module, we refresh the understanding of the different forms 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 – Updates in Legislation and Procedures

  • During this module, we will revisit the statutory guidance which relates to the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead specifically, and any recent changes to safeguarding and child protection legislation and local procedures which may have an impact on the role.

Module 3 – Role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead

  • The aim of this module is to revisit the specific requirements of the role, and identify where each delegate may be able to develop their own approach to fulfilling their responsibilities.

Module 4 – Practical Application

  • We conclude the course with an opportunity to apply the knowledge of recent changes to guidance and procedures using scenario-based exercises. These will also update the delegate’s understanding of reporting procedures, decision making, record keeping, consent, confidentiality and learning from Serious Case Reviews and Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews.
Course cost: £95 per person (six hours)

This refresher training course is ideal for those who wish to update their knowledge and skills to continue their role of Designated Safeguarding Lead. To attend this course, delegates do need to have previously attended a full Designated Safeguarding Lead training course.

Maximum of 24 delegates per course.  When this course runs through the day but is not catered in some locations, look out for details of catering or dietary requirements in your confirmation so you’re not left hungry!
