Your learning outcomes

Our Child Protection e-learning course has been designed for the education sector, to provide learners with an awareness of legislation and Government policy supporting Child Protection, and an understanding of the role of education providers.

  • The programme aims to provide underpinning knowledge enabling learners to:
  • Contribute to and take necessary action to safeguard children and young people
  • Recognise and respond to concerns about a child in need
  • Understand their own role and that of other agencies
  • Communicate and act appropriately to safeguard children
  • Know how to access support
  • Ensure that appropriate documentation is maintained.

All legislation and best practice updates are written by Barnardo’s which ensures your training is always relevant and up-to-date. The course incorporates a range of methods including quizzes, web links and a final assessment quiz to develop learners’ understanding and confidence in dealing with this difficult issue.

Course duration: 45 minutes Learners have the option to bookmark progress and complete the course in chunks.

Stay up-to-date
If you buy our Safeguarding e-learning courses you’ll get any updates we make, so you’ll always be up-to-date with current legislation.

Learning by design
All our Safeguarding e-learning courses are highly interactive with rich graphics and audio-visual content, blending a variety of question-types to encourage your learners to apply concepts to their daily work routine. An optional end-of-course test assesses learners on the level of knowledge they’ve retained. Pass rates can be set as required.

Easy to implement & customise
Our e-learning courses come with Marshall LMS (Learning Management System), which allows you to manage all your e-learning and track completed training.

Our in-house developers can quickly & effectively adapt this course to your sector and organisation, giving you the option to add your own graphics, photos & video, and amend content to include your policies, procedures and key areas.


At Marshalls we’re totally focused on creating content that’s exactly right for your learners. That’s why we’ve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely original’s required, we’ll make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? We’ll put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Page-turning e-learning just doesn’t work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People don’t learn well if they feel they’re being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

‘What’s in it for me?’ is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.

Used by

We reviewed a number of online diversity products for our professional and blue collar staff and found Marshalls to offer a well-structured, interactive product, which was cost effective and easy to implement. Since introducing the programme at Tube Lines we have had excellent feedback from our employees on how thought provoking it was, easy to use and with engaging content. They were very responsive to all our enquiries and happy to brand the product for us without loading on additional costs. I would happily recommend Marshalls to other companies looking to introduce an online diversity training package to their employees. Amanda Whiteford Head of Learning and Development Tube Lines Ltd
…a well-designed, cost-effective and accessible product’ “We worked with Marshall ACM to create an equality and diversity e-learning product, which was innovative for the legal sector at the time. We provided the content, and Marshall provided an excellent service by producing a well-designed, cost-effective and accessible product which met our needs exactly. Marshall ACM impressed us with their straightforward approach, their avoidance of consultancy-speak and adherence to deadlines. We would work with them again.
