Quality assuring your safeguarding training

The NSCP/NCSCP has developed an annual Training Content Checklist for all organisations that work with children & young people to assure yourselves that your organisations Introductory Safeguarding Children training covers the minimum course content.

The Training Content Checklist is a self-assessment tool and it is recommended that organisations complete it at the beginning of each financial year i.e. April 1st. The NSCP/NCSCP will review the checklist annually and ensure it is kept up-to-date; in line with any changes in legislation etc.

For organisations who submit the bi-annual Section 11 Audit to the Safeguarding Children Partnership, you can refer to the completion of the checklist as part of the training section of the audit.

All organisations who do complete the Training Content Checklist can refer to this within their safeguarding children courses, but are not permitted to use the Partnership Logo’s. The following statement can be used in your training resources:

Our training materials include all the content recommended within the Training Content Checklist provided by the NSCP/NCSCP.
