Safeguarding Children Training Package - Online Training Courses - Level 1, 2 & 3 - UKCSTF Aligned.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Safeguarding Children Training Package for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have adequate safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, has a right to equal protection from harm.

Setting up and following good safeguarding policies and procedures means children are safe from adults and other children who might pose a risk. This includes voluntary and community organisations, faith groups, private sector providers, as well as schools, hospitals and sports clubs.
