Child Protection for Early Years

Our February 2024 evening class will be the last delivery as part of our training programme. After this date, our Child Protection for Early Years Online Classes will only be available as Exclusive Classes.

These 2.5 hour online classes are hugely popular, engaging, interactive and informative and serve as a great child protection learning option for early years professionals. We specifically tailor safeguarding and child protection to early years and guide staff through identifying and responding to child safety concerns and allegations against staff.


This learning option meets and exceeds all sector learning requirements and we commonly deliver these classes as early evening or Saturday classes, as we know Monday - Friday, 9-5pm training options can be tricky for many settings.
