Online Safeguarding Academy

Wondering how you’re going to stay  up-to-date with the latest child protection & safeguarding rules and regulations?

Not sure how you can schedule or fund all the training needed to keep Ofsted happy?

Wishing someone else could take that stress away?

What you need is a simple solution that puts all your safeguarding training in one place, and makes it available anywhere, anytime.

That’s where the online Safeguarding Academy is your best friend

There is now a requirement for ALL staff working with children and young people to be kept regularly up to date. 

Meeting that requirement can feel like an expensive, time-consuming, never-ending task.

Being up up to date is vital for all staff whether in further or higher education or youth outreach work

The Safeguarding Academy is an online training resource dedicated to helping professionals feel confident when addressing safeguarding issues.


I’m Kate and I’ve worked in safeguarding and child protection for over 15 years, including working directly with social services.  I’m an experienced child protection lawyer, qualified mediator and trainer and for the last 9 years I’ve been training professionals including social workers, teachers, youth outreach workers & university teams

In that time I’ve seen professionals come up against the same problem time and again. There is only so much new knowledge they can take onboard during a dedicated training session, and Ofsted guidance changes so frequently that often that knowledge is out of date within months (even weeks) of attending a course.

I’ve designed the online Safeguarding Academy so that you and your team can:

  • Stay up-to-date with the latest safeguarding & child protection guidance;
  • Meet Ofsted requirements regarding ongoing safeguarding & child protection training;
  • Access child protection training materials on whenever and wherever you need them;

….without needing to schedule costly, time-consuming training sessions.
