At ECIS, we believe that establishing a successful “safeguarding culture” in a school results from professional learning that includes everyone who works in or for a school — from teaching staff through school leadership and governing stakeholders. Understanding and applying the best safeguarding practices and behaviours is not for teachers alone; nor is it for school leaders alone, nor for trustees or governors alone. A vibrant and effective child safeguarding culture is a community responsibility. Each group of stakeholders must feel confident that all adults in the system are playing a vital role in ensuring a safeguarding culture.
Our certificate programme in child safeguarding is designed, therefore, around this principle of community responsibility. As a participant in our programme, you will learn how the recruitment and on-boarding of new staff, the creation and implementation of policies and procedures, and the oversight of school leadership and the associated governing body are interconnected and mutually-reinforcing areas of building a safeguarding culture. We assess your understanding with case studies throughout the module because we want to ensure that, no matter how you identify yourself as a stakeholder in your community, you understand how the pieces are connected, so that you may rest assured that your school is building the best child safeguarding culture that it can.
The course is passed and a certificate issued if you score 70% or more in the final assessment.
