It has been agreed by DMU’s Executive Board, with the support of UCU and Unison, that all staff working at DMU will be required to undertake our Safeguarding e-learning package.

The course will equip most staff with the knowledge they need to be confident in understanding their role with regard to Safeguarding.

Safeguarding Coordinators will be required to undertake more in depth training.

You can find the training on Blackboard please follow the guide to access:
