The Essential Training Company is a leading provider of high quality and trusted support for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and the team were involved in the original specification and co-creation of the Safeguarding 24 solution.

The Essential Training Company Founder Trudie McGuinness said “As someone who has years of experience of being a Designated Safeguarding Lead overseeing more than 2500 safeguarding cases I’ve long understood the complexity of safeguarding in the digital age and the collaboration with the team at C-Learning has resulted in a solution that’s making a real difference in empowering those charged with safeguarding to stay ahead of the complexity of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in the digital age. Our team can introduce users to the Safeguarding 24 solution and support safeguarding practitioners with applying it with impact across any digital platform. It’s simple to use and set up but powerful in the additional assurance it provides.’

Jamie Smith, Executive Chairman of C-Learning said: “We’re thrilled to formally partner with Trudie and the wider team at The Essential Training Company who’ve been involved with Safeguarding 24 from day one. Their expertise and experience in safeguarding is outstanding and this collaboration will combine our specialist resources to help even more educators to protect children and vulnerable adults and to keep them safe in online spaces. The technology can be switched on in minutes and works on any platform. It’s simple to use, trusted and powerful and we look forward to working in partnership with The Essential Training Company to bring the benefits of this technology to educators and those working with children and vulnerable adults in the communities we serve”.

The team behind Safeguarding 24 spent time working with educators and safeguarding experts to explore the challenges educators are facing with such a large increase in online learning driven in part by the coronavirus pandemic, and it was clear that both teachers and students would appreciate the ability to evidence anything they experience in online learning spaces that may be a concern and to bring this to the attention of safeguarding professionals in a way aligned to good safeguarding practice. This need was the driver behind the Safeguarding24 solution.

Safeguarding 24 has been featured in SME Today, and it’s adoption in schools such as Wapping High School has been featured in FE News.

Gary Nelson, Headteacher at Wapping High School said

“Safeguarding 24 helps our students to raise any concern they may have in an online space, and for our staff it provides an immediate insight into any issues relating to a student who may be dealing with cyberbullying or a wider issue. For our school, working in partnership with expert trusted advisers ensures we can deploy the right technologies with confidence rather than hope we are procuring the right tools.”
