FAQs

What level training is this course?

Since the implementation of Safeguarding Partnerships, most sectors have moved away from using the term ‘levels’. The expectation is that you will undertake training which is relevant to the role you take in the organisation.

For example: Introduction to Safeguarding Children & Adults at Risk – would be completed by every member of a staff community that works with children and vulnerable adults.

If in doubt, reach out and we will be able to clarify what this equivalent level of training is.


What is the difference between face-to-face and live virtual training options?

As far as possible, our training is as close to being the same regardless of delivery method as they can be! All the required content is covered to the highest standard, and we aim to keep as much interaction and engagement in all of our sessions as we do in our face-to-face training.

Face-to-face is our preferred method of training, but we know this is not always possible so have made our live virtual courses available so you don’t have to miss out on being able to access our courses.


Do I need to this training for my role?

This training is a statutory requirement for all members of your staff who will work with children and/or vulnerable adults as part of their role. This includes any agency/voluntary members of your teams.


Will I receive a Certificate?

You will receive a PDF certificate for attending our training sessions. Introduction to Safeguarding Children & Adults training with ECP is CPD certified for you and your Organisation’s single central training record. You need to ensure you are available and engaged for the full duration of the training session in order to receive your certificate.


How far in advance can I book the training?

You can book your training as far in advance as you like! Some times of the year are especially busy so we advise you book up to a year or more in advance, especially if there is a specific date and time you would like to secure. If you know your training will be up for renewal the sooner you get the training date confirmed the more likely ECP will have availability to deliver your training.


How many people can attend the training?

Our face-to-face training numbers vary from course to course, and also take into consideration the size of the space we will be delivering the training in. The size of groups can vary from as small as 2 delegates to large groups of 200+.

Our virtual delivery of this training has no minimum number of attendees, maximum number of attendees is 50.

Reviews

The content, level and duration of the training was just right. Trainer very knowledgeable which came across in the training.

The training was very interesting and thought provoking, it highlighted how people generally in certain deprived conditions and people in certain jobs are very vulnerable and exposed.
