Designated Safeguarding Lead Training for Schools and Colleges
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) role is vital to keeping children safe. This Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) Training for Schools and Colleges course has been written to ensure those new to that role, or those who are to perform the Deputy DSL role, have the knowledge and skills necessary to take on these responsibilities with confidence.
The course covers the key aspects of legislation and national guidance that define the responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead, including Working Together to Safeguard Children (July 2018), Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2020) and Ofsted’s Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years, Education and Skills Settings (September 2019).
This course can be delivered either at a venue with social distancing restrictions in place, or alternatively, remotely via Zoom, to meet the needs of the setting.
DSL Training for Schools and Colleges course content
The one day course is delivered within four modules. The content of each module is as follows;
Module 1 – Legislation and Recognising Abuse
- There are two elements to this module. Firstly, we will look at the legislation and statutory guidance relating specifically to the role of DSL, and safeguarding and child protection more broadly. Secondly, we will ensure delegates understand the different forms of abuse that may be encountered, and their possible signs and causes. This will include the broader risks that children and young people now face, such as radicalisation, ‘honour’ based violence, ‘peer on peer’ abuse and ‘County lines’, reinforced by learning from serious case reviews and child safeguarding practice reviews.
Module 2- Safeguarding Processes and Procedures
- This module aims to look at processes and procedures used within safeguarding and child protection, both within the DSL’s own setting, and the wider child protection and early help arrangements.
Module 3- The Role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
- This module looks at the role and responsibilities of the DSL within their setting, including how safeguarding arrangements are assessed.
Module 4 – Practical Application
- This module aims to build an understanding of reporting procedures, decision making, record keeping, consent and confidentiality. This is done using scenario-based exercises.
