  • With many of us in forced 'stay at home' due to Covid19, it would also be opportune time to update all other mandatory training including the 6 hours annual requirement, by refreshing the 'Safety' and 'Safeguarding' online Training modules.

  • Information for Adult Training.
    Please visit these pages as we need your help in making Scotland more compliant, in terms of our Safety and Safeguarding rules. Young people's safety must be our primary concern, at all times, but a significant number of our adults are not completing Module 1/1E or Safety/Safeguarding ongoing learning, within the prescribed times. It's really important that everyone is up to date with this training,
