All faith centres should have a designated safeguarding lead ‘DSL’ and deputy. It is good practice to have both male and female representation.
The aim of the course is to develop the knowledge and skills of the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for faith institutions. As the DSL, you will learn what your role is and how to carry out your duties. Before attending this course, you should have attended a Safeguarding (awareness) course.
By the end of this half-day course, you will understand:
- The role of the DSL
- The challenges for a DSL
- How to conduct a safeguarding risk assessment
- Challenges and solutions specific to faith centres that provide supplementary religious education
- Dealing with allegations of abuse, including against teachers and others in a position of trust
- The referral procedure to local and statutory authorities
Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate and course notes
