Safeguarding training should be completed at a three-yearly interval to keep knowledge and skills up to date. Refresher training should be undertaken at the highest required level. For example, a leader of youth work activities who would have been initially required to complete Basic Awareness (C0), Foundation (C1) and then Leadership (C2) training, should refresh only the Leadership module (C2) every three years.

We are currently offering the following safeguarding training:
