E-Learning and Multi-Agency Training
All those who work directly or indirectly with children require some degree of safeguarding training either through e-learning or by attendance at a course. This includes all employees and volunteers of all WSCB member organisations. WSCB provides a blended approach utilising both e-learning and face-to-face courses.
