Course overview

Safeguarding is a broad term encompassing child protection, adult protection and prevention and can be defined as:

  • agencies working with children, young people and their families, or vulnerable adults to minimise the risk of harm
  • taking appropriate action to tackle any concerns about the welfare of children or vulnerable adults.

We have developed safeguarding e-learning modules for a range of organisations including:

  • Uber
  • the Houses of Parliament
  • the Open University.

And we have created safeguarding courses for police forces, fire authorities, local government and the NHS, that could be customised to match the needs your organisation.

Over the years we have created a suite of safeguarding e-learning products including:

We’ve been collaborating with children’s charity Barnardo’s building courses since 2005, with safeguarding a core part of our work.

At Marshall Elearning 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 is 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.


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.
