The support you need 

Unfortunately the child protection training offer through EduCare is no longer availalble from Safe Network.

From early April, the NSPCC will be hosting a new portfolio of e-learning courses

For the last few years the NSPCC has partnered with Educare to provide e-learning courses to individuals and organisations, which have contributed to keeping hundreds and thousands of children safe.  This partnership has now come to an end and we will be offering NSPCC e-learning courses. Joint NSPCC/Educare courses are no longer available to any new users. However, if you have recently signed up for one of these courses, it will be available for you to complete until the 26 March 2015.

In early April NSPCC will launch the first of a new set of e-learning courses.  The first set of courses will be Child Protection Awareness, but others will follow.  This follows the successful launch of the NSPCC’s Keeping Children Safe Online e-learning course in September,  which has already received a 99% approval rating from 409 users.
