DSL Training – DSP Training

The DSL Training course is split into 4 short modules that can be split in a variety of ways, please see further down the page for the current courses on our calendar and please be aware that all sessions will need to be attended. The content of the 4 modules are as follows:

Module 1 – Legislation, Referrals and Processes

Module 2 – From Theory into Practice

  • The aim of this module is to look at the four types of abuse (physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and neglect) in more depth and at how this might appear in our day to day practice
  • We also look at the longer-term effects on children who have been subject to abuse

Module 3 – A Toxic Mix?

  • We examine a combination of factors pertinent to children’s safeguarding
  • We look at the impact of communication in safeguarding situations

Module 4 – The Role of the DSL

Designated Safeguarding Lead Training – DSMS Training

This course is ideal for any managers, deputy managers and room leaders that need a greater understanding of the role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead or are to be the main or deputised DSL for the setting.  Attendees need to have covered the basics of Child Protection, this can be easily demonstrated if you have previously attended our courses on Child Protection and Safeguarding.  If you have attended courses run by other providers then we will need to see proof of attendance of any relevant courses (e.g. your certificates and content elements) before the start of the course, if this is not provided then we reserve the right to ask you to leave the course.
