There should be a culture of continuous learning and improvement across the organisations that work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, identifying opportunities to draw on what works and promote good practice” 

Working Together

Below are links to E learning that are readily available to the workforce. These are detailed by subject matter.


Extremism and Radicalisation:

The Home Office has developed a free learning package which offers an introduction to the Prevent duty, and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves. You can access the training at the link below:



Please find the link to available training provided by the ©College of Policing & Metropolitan Police Service 2014 here.

The Module provides information on Channel and your responsibilities to the process. It also details how this links to the government’s Counter Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST).



Female Genital Mutilation (FGM):

In August 2014 the Home Office launched a free online training package dealing FGM, developed with the Virtual College

The free online training provides safeguarding professionals, including teachers, police, doctors, social workers and Border Force staff with an overview of FGM and their responsibilities in FGM cases. It also contains information on how to prevent FGM and helps professionals support those who have been subjected to it.

The training can be accessed here.


Child Sexual Exploitation

Parents Against Child Sexual Exploitation (PACE) offer a free online training package providing a brief introduction to Child Sexual Exploitation. Whilst the package is aimed at parents and carers, professionals and volunteers may find this package useful to complete.

The training can be accessed here.

The Department of Health and The Children’s Society have also developed an engaging and interactive elearning course to help healthcare professionals and partners protect and identify children and young people at risk of abuse or exploitation. This course is designed to enable all healthcare workers to spot the signs of child sexual abuse and exploitation, and help them create an environment where young people are more likely to disclose.

The elearning features a powerful drama about a young boy called Tyler, and raises awareness of what to look for when healthcare professionals come into contact with a child or young person. Applying the learnings from the course will help us to create a widespread change in the way children and young people experience health settings. The elearning can be accessed by visiting www.seenandheard.org.uk.

Basic Awareness in Safeguarding

There is a course available the NSPCC website which can be found below:


The NSPCC provides online learning for a small fee.  Milton Keynes practitioners will need to complete it with the local procedures in mind, which can be found at the  MKSB Inter-Agency Procedures website

It is particularly important that any face-to-face safeguarding children training is considered in line with the Milton Keynes Levels of Need document, which is available to download here.
