Before beginning any placement, we strongly recommend that all students familiarise themselves with the Keeping Children Safe In Education policies (KCSIE) which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/keeping-children-safe-in-education–2 . This is in addition to undertaking a safeguarding training and keeping abreast of safeguarding policies in the placement.
The student will need to have completed a safeguarding level 2 online training (see https://cpdonline.co.uk/courses/safeguarding/ ) before commencement of placement.
This will be at the cost of the student (currently approximately £25 / year). A copy of the completion certificate will need to be submitted to the school placement liaison and will be deemed part of the placement documentation.
The safeguarding training will need to be renewed each year and must become part of the student’s practice.
