Understanding the three major changes to Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022

30 June 2022

Being match fit for September 

Along with the usual tweaks, the September 2022 guidance contains three major changes and little detail on how to implement them.

In this webinar, Dai Durbridge talks you through:

  • The expectation around governor and trustee safeguarding training
  • What that training should cover and how best to source it
  • How to carry out online searches on shortlisted candidates
  • How to interpret the results of those searches and address risk
  • Unpacking the 'appropriate adult' addition in Annex C

As a result of watching this webinar, you will know what changes are required for September and the steps you need to take to implement them.

This webinar is suitable for senior leaders in education settings, including CEOs, COOs and CFOs, head teachers and principals, directors and heads of HR, designated safeguarding leads, governors and Trustees.
