Safeguarding Training for Governors and Trustees

This safeguarding course is designed specifically for governors and trustees. It steers away from operational safeguarding matters and instead focuses on strategic safeguarding and good safeguarding governance, meeting the requirements of The Governance Handbook 2022 and Keeping Children Safe 2022.

Led by Dai Durbridge and delivered via Zoom, the interactive and engaging session builds in plenty of time for delegates to work through case studies, have their questions answered and share their own learning and experiences.
