Welcome to the Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board E-learning Self Registration Site

Welcome to the Northamptonshire SCB suite of e-learning courses. This learning is being offered in collaboration with the Safeguarding Children e-Academy (www.safeguardingchildrenea.co.uk)

Safeguarding children is everybody’s business and NSCB is committed to the continuous learning and development of staff and volunteers working with children, young people and families in Northamptonshire.

This suite of e-learning courses is free to all members of the children's workforce in Northamptonshire with the exception of private and for profit organisations.

Private and for profit organisations can purchase the training from the Virtual College website. If four or more licences are being purchased in one transaction, then a discount may be available. In this instance please contact the Safeguarding e-Academy, by calling 01943 885083, or emailing healthandsocialcare@virtual-college.co.uk. Please quote the promotional code NSCBNORTH, the course you are applying for, and the number of licences you require. You will receive a £5.00 discount per licence on eligible courses on the normal £30.00 per user cost.

Once you have self-registered for a learner record, you will then be able to request your training from our extensive directory of Safeguarding courses. You will be able to request any of these courses from the Requested Learning Tab on your Learner Record, but please only select one course at a time, and complete each course before selecting a new one.

 To help with the selection process we have provided a summary of the course content and target audience for each course under the above link. The courses on offer have been selected to support your on-going development.

Before beginning any of the training courses please ensure you have had a conversation with your line manager regarding the appropriate level of course for you to complete.

Once you start your online learning course you have 4 weeks to complete it. You will be sent a reminder after 2 weeks.

If you do not complete the course within 4 weeks there will be a charge of £40 for your organisation.
