North East Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Partnership’s Online Learning is Moving to a New Platform from Monday 23 November 2020

Our safeguarding children e-learning training, in collaboration with Virtual College, is moving over to a new platform called Enable on Monday 23 November 2020.  This new platform will provide a more modern and visual appeal and an improved user experience.

If you have accessed any courses on the current system, available through the SaferNEL website with Virtual College, you will need to ensure that any certificates have been downloaded or printed by this date, as records will not be transferred over to the new system and you will be required to register on the new system from 23 November onwards.

There will be no break in availability of this online learning.  Please continue to access the online safeguarding training on the SaferNEL training page here, from 23 November.

Courses are currently free to access, providing they are completed within 21 days, otherwise we will charge a £50 non-completion charge per person per course.

When self-registering, you will be asked to select a group, similar to previously.  Please select the group that is most appropriate, ie ‘Academies/Schools and Other Learning Providers’

We have chosen courses from an extensive catalogue but have only been able to purchase 500 licences, so please consider this when choosing courses and check that they are appropriate for you to access.  Virtual College have reviewed and consolidated some courses so the titles may now be different, as well as applying levels to some courses now.

* Please note that the course levels listed below, ie Safeguarding Children Level 3, have been produced according to intercollegiate competence levels and do not align to our current SCP training levels.   This course most closely aligns to our SCP Level 1 training

The following courses will be available for you to access, as appropriate to your role:
