Training for the safeguarding sector

We’ve been an established training provider to the safeguarding sector for over 10 years, delivering safeguarding and child protection training to more than one million people.

Safeguarding is fast-paced, constantly changing and churning out new challenges in ensuring the well-being of children and adults at risk. In order to ensure the safety of children and adults at risk, it is essential that safeguarding is seen as everyone’s responsibility.

Appropriate training is essential in increasing awareness and understanding so that professionals can act appropriately when concerns are raised. Working alongside safeguarding boards, Virtual College has delivered online safeguarding training to over 1 million people and is the UK’s leading provider. In this fast-paced environment it is essential that all courses are up to date and to ensure this is the case, Virtual College continues to work with subject matter experts to constantly review and update all courses taking this responsibility away from our customers.
