You will book on and complete each module at your own convenience. Module 1 does not have a work shop. However at the end of modules 2, 3 and 4 you will be asked to select a 1 hour virtual workshop for each of these modules, where you will take part in a group discussion to support consolidation of learning.


When all four modules and three workshops are completed a certificate for the Inter Agency Safeguarding Children and Young People will be awarded, we recommend that you complete the full course within 6 weeks.

If you have completed the Interagency safeguarding Children and Young People face to face course in the last 6 years, you do not need to complete these modules. However if there are individual modules you would like to complete a certificate will be awarded for that module.
