Safeguarding awareness training

The Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy 2019-2023. makes it a requirement for you to undertake safeguarding awareness training. There are a number of training providers who offer courses, but if you're looking for a course please make sure the content of the course includes the following:

What the training session must cover:

  • raising awareness of safeguarding and child protection, and how to respond in an appropriate and timely way
  • recognising the different types of abuse including the possible warning signs
  • what procedure you need to take to raise a concern about possible abuse
  • keeping yourselves safe when working

We currently offer a safeguarding awareness course tailored specifically to cover the requirements of the Shropshire Safeguarding Children’s Board.
