Our safeguarding training ensures that volunteers offer girls a safe space where they can have fun, learn and grow.
Safety is at the heart of everything we do. Because we know that when girls feel safe, they feel brave enough to do things they never thought they could. That’s why we’ve updated our A Safe Space training. The new training will help you:
- Understand your role in safeguarding and what to do
- Recognise potential safeguarding issues
- Understand our safety and safeguarding policies
- Chat to others about what to do
- Answer your questions
A Safe Space, Level 1 – An introduction
For all volunteers including occasional helpers, GO coordinators, home contacts, peer educators and young leaders.
People visiting units more than once should be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training. As we cannot log or enforce this training until someone is a registered volunteer on GO there is no need to ask for proof of completion. Anyone completing the eLearning can download and save or print a certificate at that time should they later want it as proof.
People visiting a unit once do not need to be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training but if returning, please do ensure they are aware of the importance of understanding and implementing our safeguarding practice.
A Safe Space, Level 2 – Creating a safe space
For leaders, assistant leaders, unit helpers, leaders in training, young leaders, peer educators and those that are doing level 3 and 4.
