New Safeguarding training for schools from BlueSky Learning

BlueSky Learning partners with Victoria Raynor, International Safeguarding Consultant and Chair of the International Forum of Safeguarding Professionals.

Launching this September, BlueSky Learning, the Bett award-shortlisted online CPD library, has partnered with Raynor Safeguarding to provide comprehensive Safeguarding training for schools. The partnership will deliver robust, interactive and accredited safeguarding training for all school staff, included with BlueSky Learning membership, which starts at just £375 per year*.

Safeguarding in schools is a perpetual challenge as myriad factors may pose a risk to students. It is well known that the earlier that potential safeguarding concerns can be identified, the sooner school staff can give assistance to the young person in need. Safeguarding is an ever-evolving landscape so staff training must be ongoing to reflect this.

BlueSky Learning is pleased to introduce a programme of in-depth safeguarding training for school staff, delivered by Victoria Raynor, Chair of the International Forum of Safeguarding Professionals, Distinguished Fellow of IFIP and Director of Raynor Safeguarding.

This programme will include in-depth safeguarding training for your staff at induction, the annual refresher for all staff, and a module on safeguarding for governors, as well as a live, interactive online sessions each half term, designed to keep staff abreast of the ever changing safeguarding landscape, and to provide schools with a chance to ask advice from a leading expert.

BlueSky Learning will also offer accredited level 3 Designated Safeguarding Lead training, with DSL Refresher Training coming next year.

This comprehensive safeguarding training can be delivered to the entire school workforce with a single affordable subscription, which also includes access to the comprehensive BlueSky Learning CPD library.
