Education Specific Safer Working Practice Training


This is designed to cover the specific SWP guidance for education staff, drawing on typical examples that have happened locally here in Wakefield.


Designed for whole staff viewing, not individual.

Governors are welcome to attend any operational basic training for their interest, but they will need the separate strategic level governor safeguarding training (face to face) – see Traded Services website for individuals or contact wscpevents@wakefield.gov.uk for whole governor body training (every 2 years).
