E-Learning

Our new E-learning is currently being re-built. This is so our users can complete E-learning packages using tablets, Apple products and phones. Please bear with us while these are being rebuilt. We will be in touch when they are finished.

As a stop gap we have maintained the old CMS so users can still complete E-learning for a short while but this has to be completed on a PC or a non apple laptop. The link for this is http://www.courses.kirkleessafeguardingchildren.co.uk/site/login and you should be able to log on as normal.

There is also E-learning available via other organisations below.

Domestic Violence, Substance Misuse and Mental Health

Domestic and sexual violence, problematic substance use and mental ill-health are three issues which often co-exist and when they do, things can become complicated.  This course is designed to ‘uncomplicate’ matters by raising your awareness about how the three issues interlink and reflecting on the most effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues

Female Genital Mutilation

The Home Office has launched free online training for frontline professionals in identifying and helping girls at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM). This comes as figures are released revealing that police forces have investigated dozens of FGM cases over the last three years.

Prevent Awareness

This offers an introduction to the Prevent duty, and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

Prevent Referrals

This package builds on the Prevent awareness eLearning training. It is designed to make sure that when we share a concern that a vulnerable individual may be being radicalised, that the referral is robust, informed and with good intention, and that the response to that concern is considered, and proportionate.

Channel Awareness

This training package is for anyone who may be asked to contribute to, sit on, or even run a Channel Panel. It is aimed at all levels, from a professional asked to input and attend for the first time, to a member of staff new to their role and organising a panel meeting.

It provides a basic understanding of the key issues surrounding forced marriage, how cases can present, and how to respond appropriately.

Drugs Awareness

This free drugs training is suitable whether you are a parent, carer, employer, employee, friend or somebody who is worried about anyone who is or may be using drugs (legal and illegal substances).

There are two courses to choose from depending on whether you are working with young people or if you are supporting adults.

The package contains audio video clips which require enabled speakers or use of a headset via the computer audio output socket. When viewing the video please listen carefully to the ‘opinions’ being expressed together and consider them in conjunction with the video discussion points.
