Safeguarding training for tutors working with children and young people

Are you a tutor who works with children and young people, either face-to-face or online?

Whether you’re a large tutoring company, an independent, self-employed tutor or a charity, you need to understand your role and responsibilities in protecting children and young people from harm.

As the UK’s experts on safeguarding, we’ve produced an elearning course for tutors to support you in protecting young people from abuse and responding to child protection concerns.

What will I learn?

  • Policies and procedures you need to have in place before you start working with children.
  • Practical tips for making sure your sessions are safe, whether it’s being delivered in your home, the child’s home, at a place of work or online.
  • How to recognise child protection concerns.
  • What to do if you are worried about a child.
  • How to respond if a child tells you they are experiencing abuse.
  • A summary of relevant child protection legislation and guidance across the UK.

Benefits of the course

  • CPD certified.
  • Regularly updated to reflect changes in legislation, guidance and best practice advice.
  • Includes film scenarios, interactive quizzes and reflective tasks to help you develop your understanding and confidence.
  • Complete at your own pace and in your own time.
  • Train anytime, anywhere and take the course as many times as you like within one year.
  • Income generated from the sale of our training courses is reinvested back into the NSPCC to help protect children.

  • If you purchase licences on behalf of your team, you can download a report to show who has completed the course.
  • Once you’ve taken the course, it doesn’t stop there. We have a range of further information, training and downloadable resources to help you protect the children you work with.
