Designated Safeguarding Lead Training: Safeguarding in Education


This Course is for any member of staff who intends to perform the role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or the role of the alternate DSL. The 2 day course will cover the legislative framework, statutory guidance, the roles and responsibilities of the DSL, safer working practice, learning lessons from serious case reviews and best practice in line with the Ofsted Framework for Inspection.

From September 2016, members of staff who are new to the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead or have not attended the Safeguarding in Education Course since April 2010 will be required to attend a two day training course. This development is in response to feedback received following DSL training, it has been supported by the Education Advisory Group of the NSCB and brings the training in line with many other LAs and the NSPCC.

DSLs who have attended a full day training since April 2010 are not required to undertake the two day course and should book on a refresher.


Schools are expected to have a process in place to keep children safe by providing a safe environment for children to learn and to identify those children at risk of significant harm.
