Whether working with children and young people or vulnerable adults, businesses and organisations no matter how small or large, have a duty of care to safeguard and protect.
As an established safeguarding training provider, we’ve delivered safeguarding training to more than two million people online. In that time we’ve worked with both public and private organisations across the UK and internationally to help develop and enhance their safeguarding training provision and measure its effectiveness.
A complex subject, safeguarding spans from types of abuse and signs and symptoms through to online safety and forced marriage, meaning that implementing an effective training programme can be challenging for any organisation. However, it’s essential that organisations and employees receive the correct training, and both absorb the information and confidently put it into practice.
Our safeguarding training solutions have been designed to tackle the modern day challenges faced by organisations, going above and beyond to put the learner first. Our online tool and expert consultants will help you assess which level of training is required. In the courses’ new bite-size form, your employees can go straight to the topic they want. Engaging and relevant scenarios bring the topics to life and our large number of resources can be downloaded and referred to when needed, ensuring that the knowledge is retained and easily accessible.
By collaborating with experts, we ensure that our content is comprehensive, straightforward and relevant to safeguarding partners, forming packages that drive the right behaviour changes.

If you are not 100% satisfied with your course then we offer a 30-day, no hassle money-back guarantee. To request a refund, you should email our learner support team with your receipt stating why you would like to be reimbursed. You, or your learners, must not have completed the training in order to make a valid refund claim. Any claim made after the training has been completed will be invalidated.
This online course consists of a series of pages in which an instructor will talk learners through the lesson material. Pages may include supporting pictures, graphs, animation or extra sounds to help with the learning where appropriate. Some lessons will include challenges/quizzes to help learners stay engaged and interested in the material. Lessons can be taken in any order and each lesson may be paused and resumed at any stage.
The course is self-paced so learners decide how fast or slow the training goes. There is no deadline for completion but the course does have a test at the end to check that learners have understood the material. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark to successfully complete the course. Once learners have passed the test they are awarded a certificate, which can either be downloaded digitally or sent as a physically copy if this option was chosen when purchasing the course.
Upon completion of any of our courses, learners will be able to download a digital certificate from Virtual College and will include the accrediting bodies logo where applicable.
If you have bought the posted certificate option (available on select courses), a high quality, seal embossed, certificate will be sent out on the next working day.
