Essential training for Childminders

We’re sure you are already familiar with the phrase, ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s duty.’ It is a fact that everyone who comes into contact with children as part of their job role – whether voluntary or paid – has a responsibility to protect those children’s welfare by ensuring they have up-to-date safeguarding training. Childminders are no exception to this rule. In fact, safeguarding is a vital topic in Ofsted inspections for Childminders, and failure to produce evidence of verifiable child protection training could mean losing important marks during your next inspection.

Safeguarding is a broad subject. Not only does it include essential child protection topics such as the issue of child abuse and neglect, it also encompasses other important topics like online safety, anti-radicalisation, current legislation, and your knowledge of how to handle allegations and report concerns. When choosing a safeguarding training course as a Childminder, you should be mindful that you need knowledge of all these topics. If just one topic is missing, you could risk failing your Ofsted inspection, or – more importantly – your lack of training could mean you overlook a genuine child protection issue.
