The training is split over two evenings for Southwark Ofsted registered childminders on the Early Years and Childcare registers. It builds on from Southwark’s Safeguarding Level 1 & 2 training and is not to replace this training but enhance childminder’s understanding of their designated lead role and responsibility. It is particularly helpful for childminders that work alongside others, such as, assistants and for experienced childminders who would like to develop their safeguarding knowledge.


This online training session considers the ways in which you can meet further develop your practice by:

  • Understanding your role as the designated safeguarding lead and the key areas of your 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 your role in this multi-agency child protection process
  • Understand the process if an allegation is made against you / your assistant if you have one or family member
