An Introduction to Safeguarding Children

Online E-Learning Training

Specifically for Civil Society



"It is rare for small charities to be able to find training that is high quality, affordable, accredited and meets their core needs.


VSL's Safeguarding Children course does exactly that. It informs, engages and makes sure that your staff, volunteers and trustees are well trained and confident in their safeguarding duties."
