Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Safeguarding Children training. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

Children have a right to protection from being hurt, and from violence, abuse and neglect. The health, safety and welfare of all our children are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our setting. Children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture, background or disability.

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.
