HSCB E-Learning Courses


HSCB has introduced E-Learning for professionals who work with children and young people but have difficulty attending training. We advise that staff with lead safeguarding responsibilities should attend multi-agency classroom training.

There are two E-Learning courses, HSCB Induction to Safeguarding E-Learning and HSCB Introduction to Safeguarding and Child Protection E-Learning which are available via the Learning Pool.  See a guide to accessing courses via the Learning Pool here.
