What we offer

The Safe and Equal Learning Partnership (SELP) offers a range of staff development in safeguarding and equality & diversity for the further education and skills sector. Our programmes take account of legislation and Ofsted inspection. They are practical, participative, draw on best sector practice and are certificated.

Programmes are suitable for all staff at all levels of seniority working in general further education colleges, sixth form colleges, independent providers and adult and community learning.

The law requires all staff to be trained and updated regularly in safeguarding. SELP’s safeguarding programmes – face to face and online – support providers to meet their legal duties, achieve excellence and become inspection ready.

Currently all of our programmes are being delivered online. We will resume face to face delivery when the progress of the pandemic allows.

In-house programmes

All of our open programmes can be delivered to groups of staff from a single or consortium of providers. We can also create entirely new programmes to meet the specific needs of individual providers. Currently all of these are delivered online and cost £400.

Online learning

Safeguarding for All is a suite of standing, Moodle-based courses that support staff to develop the safeguarding skills and knowledge required by statutory guidance and OfSTED.

Regularly updated, comprehensive, interactive and certificated, it is ideal for training large and smaller cohorts of staff, efficiently and cost effectively.

Using Safeguarding for All will support providers meet their statutory duty to train and update all their staff in safeguarding.

Health checks

Our objective, expert safeguarding health checks will be delivered online in the current circumstances. They will review all aspects of your safeguarding practice. A confidential, comprehensive report will highlight effective and non-effective practice, and offer constructive advice on improvement strategies.

Health checks are helpful in preparing for inspection, and in establishing benchmarks for quality improvement.
