Safeguarding Children in Schools

These easy to access eLearning modules are tailored specifically to meet the needs of Northern Ireland schools. It provides thorough safeguarding training suitable for all school employees.

Children come into contact with teachers more often than any other profession. That’s why high quality safeguarding training in schools is essential to ensure the safe development and protection of our children. It also makes sense from a legal point of view helping close down a school’s liability in the event of a child safeguarding matter arising onsite.

Until recently, safeguarding training in Northern Ireland schools has been carried out following conventional learning methods. Designated teachers would be responsible for disseminating their own expertise and training among colleagues. Even where this would be done regularly and well schools could never be sure that at any one point all staff had been trained and fully understood what were their duties and responsibilities.
