eLearning news & guides
Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Keeping children safe in education (Part 1)
- 2 Annex A: Further safeguarding information
Part 1 of the KCSIE document is mandatory reading for all staff and gives a complete overview of safeguarding responsibilities for all staff. Staff will gain a better understanding of the importance of their role and how they can play a crucial role in preventing safeguarding issues.
Annex A is also mandatory and contains important additional information about specific forms of abuse and safeguarding issues. School and college leaders and those staff who work directly with children should read this annex.
About this course
Our online KCSIE course allows for easy reporting, helping you keep tabs on who has and who hasn't read part 1 of the guidance.
Best of all, we give it away for free to any educational institute that purchases any other Health & Safety or HR Compliance training course.
We decided to create this online version of the document when we were approached by a school that wanted an easier recording method for staff that had read the guidance. Signing a piece of paper wasn't enough for them to prove that their staff had read and understood the contents of the document.
After passing this onto the development team we were delighted to launch a module in which users were tested on their knowledge and the completed result was recorded within the suite. One comment from one school created our KCSIE course, now 3 years on we are proud that we are able to help schools easily adhere to their mandatory requirements.

This is a necessary part of training, when working with or around children. Be aware it can be quite heavy to do this and level 2 at the same time.
Very useful, an amazing recap. Thank you
As the Unit is very long, it might have been useful to have 2 shorter sections? Also, the new guidance updated in January 2021 comes into effect on 1st September 2021. It would be useful to know what the changes are, although they are available online.
Very informative thank you
Too much text
Include different content such as video, part-way quizes and others. 113 blocks of text isn't great.
Easy to understand and interesting cours
This is the first time I've done this course but it was very interesting , some things are common sence but some things did make me think about the answer .
Informative and well explained.
A very useful training tool that covers all key topics.
Very thorough and comprehensive training
I found this to be a well in-depth training course with useful links to follow if more information or support was wanted. In the absence of a face-to-face course (I find it is always better to be able to raise questions and discuss issues with the experts and update information regularly), I thought this was a very informative substitute.
Why is this training important
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
It's crucial that all staff read part 1 of the KSCIE document to better understand their safeguarding responsibilities.
Keeping Children Safe in Education is statutory guidance that schools and colleges in England must have regard to when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Management committees of pupil referral units (PRUs) are asked to ensure that all staff in their school or college read at least Part one of the guidance.
