Safeguarding & Child Protection Professional Development 

Staff Meeting

Face-to-Face Training

Due to frequent Covid changes, we have currently paused our multi-agency training programme.

However, we continue to support organisations with onsite face-to-face training. We can deliver any of our existing courses or develop bespoke training for you.

Using a Tablet

Virtual Classroom Classes

A great cost-effective learning option in and out of Covid restrictions.


We have a great range of safeguarding and child protection online classes. All delivered via our user-friendly virtual classroom, making sure learners receive a great online version of our face-to-face training.

Working from Home


High-quality tailored child protection eLearning, supporting a range of sectors (e.g. schools, early years, the disability sector, etc.) or specific audiences (volunteers, safeguarding staff, etc.). 


Designed for independent learners and multiple registrations. We also offer a 10-20% discount framework for multiple registrations.

In-House Training

Your Course / Your Location / Your Timeframe

Our in-house training is a hugely popular service. Many customers make further bookings and return to us for their refresher training. We are proud to share that all learner evaluations rate our training highly.


As well as providing qualitative and engaging learning, we also make sure our training:

~ Is tailored to your needs. We don't make you fit to what's available. We make what you need available. Whether tailoring an existing option to your needs or developing a course for you.

~ Supports specific or blended learning options, e.g. face-to-face, virtual classroom classes, webinars, inter-active briefings and/or aligns with eLearning.

~ Is flexible on delivery. Monday to Friday, 9-5pm doesn't work for everyone. If it is more favourable, we can work with you to deliver Saturday or early evening sessions.

~ Is cost-effective in price, and if possible, we promote self-sustainable learning options.

Why not make the most of our free no-obligation consultation service and explore learning options for your staff?

The Y has engaged Holistic Safeguarding to embed safeguarding best practice into our organisational culture. This has included reviewing policy, frontline training, as well as Trainer for Trainer sessions. Kim Dickinson is a knowledgeable and dynamic trainer, and training sessions have been well received by our staff.  Working with Kim and Holistic Safeguarding has ensured that our organisation is on the best path to create a child-safe organisation.

Online Classes

We've made certain our virtual classroom is super user friendly and can support staff irrelevant of their IT skills or experience. So if you're nervous about online learning or worried you won't enjoy this as much as face-to-face learning, please don't be. We guide you through everything, and all classes are engaging, interactive and informative.

We offer a range of required and specialist training topics. As well as delivering these via our training programme, we can also provide these classes as in-house learning options, or we can develop a bespoke online class for you.

We seek to make sure our online classes represent our face-to-face training as much as possible. Classes commonly include - trainer facilitation, presentations, group work, interactive exercises, videos, quizzes, handouts, resources and personal certificates.

Studying Online

It was a pleasure to work with Holistic Safeguarding. They accommodated our staff, with times to suit us, and the course was interactive and interesting. I will be looking forward to doing other courses with Holistic Safeguarding.
