    How it works


    Our system has been designed to make safeguarding & duty of care training in schools and academies simple, with no complicated setup for administrators or staff.

    Our system is secure (128-bit SSL-encrypted), can be accessed 24/7/365 and works across 2 online websites.

    How to issue a course -To see exactly how you issue a course to your staff with our system.

    Our Admin Dashboard -To see all the things you can do with our Admin Dashboard.

    1. The Admin Dashboard - (

      Our system requires no complicated setup. From the Admin Dashboard simply copy and send an invitation email to your staff with the login details for your school or academy. Once your staff commence training, all progress, results and CPD certificates are presented in the Admin Dashboard as evidence of training.

      NEW - Document Tracker - Saves you hours chasing staff for signed confirmation they have read key documentation. Easily link to your bespoke policy documents, or any other publications, issue them to your team via the training dashboard and provide evidence that they had been read via the admin dashboard.

    2. The Training Site - (

      Staff complete a course via any PC, Mac, Smartphone or Tablet. Each course is made up of an engaging multimedia presentation created using 3D animation, comprehensive course notes and a fully tracked multiple-choice assessment. On completion, staff can view and print their CPD accredited certificate.

      All courses are kept up-to-date with any changes in legislation or policy ensuring practice in your school or academy is compliant with current requirements.

    Our courses meet all the requirements previously contained in the 'level system'.

    Unless that is the language used by your safeguarding tri-partnership's (the replacement for LSCBs) training policy, training is not currently described in terms of levels. This system was replaced by matching competencies to roles as defined in the intercollegiate framework.

    The content of our courses is updated when any changes in legislation, statutory guidance and/or inspection frameworks are issued, ensuring you fully comply with the latest requirements.

    Disparity in cascading training is removed. Continuity, through the individual assessment of learning, gives leadership assurance that practice is informed by robust evidence.

    Provides a full training audit trail for governance and to evidence compliance with statutory requirements.
