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.

Very concise and clear

Very informative course

This course was very informative and I found a lot of the background reading very interesting. However, the time scales you put on your courses are unrealistic as even with just reading 89 slides and scanning many of the resources I don’t see how you expect it to be done in the timeframe. I’m glad I did the course at home as I had time to delve and didn’t feel pressured to rush through in a given training slot at school.

Very informative

I learnt some interesting things which I never knew. Once I’d started the course I didn’t want to break off and so completed it all at once.

retention difficulties

took a long time to complete, trying to retain facts if needed for the test.Lots of note taking, which at the end wasn't all needed.

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.
