Training for trainers in safeguarding and child protection is an advanced course for individuals who have previously completed child protection training and hold a responsibility for the delivery of quality safeguarding training.
A minimum of two years child protection practice is required.
People who have taken this course include:

This course doesn’t provide training on child protection.
This programme offers professionals, trainers and/or experienced practitioners who have a strategic role in safeguarding training and development the opportunity for accreditation with the NSPCC Certificate of Competency in safeguarding Training.
Participants registering for the accreditation will need to submit an application form for consideration within two months of completing the six-day taught programme, and must meet the following requirements:
have a minimum of two years practice experience in promoting and safeguarding children's welfare
have delivered training to those who work regularly with children, young people and adults who are parents/carers

The accreditation involves an assessment process and candidates will be required to demonstrate their training competence against a number of performance indicators. These indicators cover all aspects of the training cycle which are underpinned by safeguarding children practice.
Candidates are required to prepare and submit a practice portfolio to evidence competence in safeguarding training.
Candidates will also attend three half-day workshops and be observed delivering a safeguarding training event. The timeline for completion of the assessment is 9-12 months from the date of the first workshop.
Maximum time available for assessment is 21 hours over a 6-9 month period.
