Training requirements: designated staff


Each school must have a designated safeguarding lead (DSL) who takes lead responsibility for safeguarding and child protection. They should be given training to provide advice and support to other staff on child welfare and protection matters. Schools can choose to have one or more deputy DSL(s); however, any deputies should be trained to the same standard as the DSL.
