Training that makes a difference
Keeping up to date with statutory guidance is key, but we believe safeguarding training should go beyond a tick-box approach to compliance. We are dedicated to encouraging behaviour change and putting people in control of their learning, which is why our courses are based around practical experiences rather than just pure theory.
Our extensive knowledge and experience landed us a Gold award at the Learning Technologies Awards for ‘excellence in the design of learning content in the public and non-profit sector' for ‘Recognising and Preventing FGM’ a course developed in partnership with the Home Office.
Ready to go courses
Our courses cover a range of topics, including safeguarding children in education, children and adults sexual exploitation, mental health, domestic violence and our award winning FGM course.
We work with organisations all around the world to develop tailored training. We will work with you to understand what training solutions will best meet the needs of your organisation, learners, budget and timescales.
Our Learning Management System
Our learning management system, Enable allows you to manage your safeguarding training more effectively, saving you administration time whilst helping you train a greater number of learners. Enable also allows individuals to download personalised certificates for their files to evidence learning and has feature rich management and reporting tools to help you manage your learners.
The Home Office: Using e-learning to combat FGM
Virtual College worked with the Home Office to develop a bespoke e-learning course that, whilst handling the subject in a sensitive way, gave the learners clear information about identifying and responding to FGM practices. Over 211,000 people have now taken the online training.
Somerset Safeguarding Children Board Case Study
Virtual College worked with Somerset SCB to help them implement training software that included an online auditing tool. This has made the whole process quicker, easier to manage and more effective to report on.
Virtual College’s passion for the project and their understanding for the sensitivity of the subject…meant that the end product was innovative and tailored to the needs of the learners.
It is now easy to track progress, police completions and challenge responses so that we can focus on support and continuous improvement.
Our new starters can do all of their mandatory training straight away so we know they will have covered all of the compliance topics in the first week.
