Training Provider Safeguarding

Total Safeguarding

Whether you have young people working on placements, long-term apprenticeships, internships or learners participating in other vocational training schemes, as a training provider, you have a duty of care for their welfare. 

Safeguarding challenges have never been more complex nor the legal duties of those working with young people more stringent; Ofsted increasingly reports that training organisations don't have sufficient processes in place to manage safeguarding concerns. The number and range of safeguarding concerns now being handled in society have grown exponentially to include issues such as child sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, radicalisation, online bullying and e-safety issues.

Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of learners, in both physical and mental health, during their work placements is crucial, not to mention the obligation upon the workplace’s partners if there is something that raises a concern.

Speak to us to discuss how The Safeguarding Company can support you and your organsiation. 

We believe that successfully achieving high standards of professional safeguarding practice is founded on eight core principles that come together to create Total Safeguarding:

  • Strong governance, leadership and management
  • A clear focus on harm prevention and reduction
  • Efficient recording and case management of concerns
  • Effective team working within and between individuals and organisations
  • Managing and sharing information securely, lawfully, and pro-actively
  • Securing professional and emotional support for your people, your teams and yourself
  • Being able to see the rich picture – understanding your data and developing insight
  • Learning lessons from your own professional practice and that of others.

The essential step to Total Safeguarding is to combine the practice of safeguarding with the very best technology - each is necessary, individually they are unlikely to meet the current safeguarding challenge. Together we can create everything you need for yours to be a world-class safeguarding organisation – one that protects children and adults and supports them to have the best outcomes in learning, in work and in life.


Our suite of safeguarding solutions to support Training Organisations is ever-growing, so we can help with your safeguarding processes in a number of ways. From MyConcern, which offers a secure, centralised system for the management of all categories of safeguarding, child protection and pastoral concern, to Sentry our safer recruitment and personal vetting solution that acts as your single central record.

"Our previous process made me apprehensive. I worried about the quality of the data being input and finer detail being missed, there was also no chronology. When I was shown the MyConcern product – I think that was the most excited I’ve been in my working life!"
