Practical Strategies for Safeguarding in Education
Venue: ILEC Conference Centre, London
Date: 26 February, 2019
"Why is this conference relevant?
'81% of young people said that they would like their school or college to teach them more about how to look after their mental health' (Young Minds, 2018)"
“This figure conflates with the many challenges DSLs face in their schools. Challenges related to strain on local services, online trends, increased workloads and meeting inspection requirements, means that while being a safeguarding lead can be very rewarding, there are still many hurdles and fresh obstacles each day.
This conference will provide novel and pragmatic approaches to key issues related to mental health, online safety and peer-on-peer abuse; but will also provide sources of information for emerging safeguarding trends such as county lines and gender identity. Overall, the conference will be practical and solutions-driven in providing strategies on challenging issues related to safeguarding in education.”
