To provide Managers and DSL’s with a wide range of knowledge and skills to fulfil their statutory duties in safeguarding children.

The Advanced early year’s child protection Programme will run over 3 days in which managers and DSL’s can attend Day 1, 2, 3 at any time 

To facilitate a learning environment where managers and DSL’s have the opportunity to come together with their peers to refresh, reflect on and extend their safeguarding knowledge and practice.

3.5 of the EYFS, (2023) states, ‘A practitioner must be designated to take lead responsibility for safeguarding children in every setting. Childminders must take the lead responsibility themselves.’



This 1 day training session considers the ways in which you or your setting’s designated lead officer can meet the requirements of this statutory role by:

  • Understanding the role of the designated safeguarding lead/officer and the key areas of responsibility
  • Identifying and responding to different categories of harm and abuse and managing disclosures in the context of safeguarding children.
  • Reviewing the key legislation and guidance affecting your response to concerns about a child's safety or welfare
  • Knowing what is likely to happen following a referral to children's social care or other agency and the role the setting has in this multi-agency child protection process
