Safeguarding Requirements

Daisi is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people that engage in any Daisi creative activity. As part of the workforce that helps shape many of these experiences and opportunities, we need to demonstrate that all our staff, our board members and our creative practitioners are aware of and trained to an introductory level of knowledge and understanding around safeguarding procedures and policies. 

That is why from the 1st April 2020, we will need to see evidence of safeguarding training (up to a minimum of level/group 2) that has been undertaken within the last 3 years. 

If you already hold a Safeguarding training certificate, please scan or post a copy to us, so that we can update our records.  If you have never attended training or your training is older than 3 years, you may want to take advantage of the various opportunities and methods of training we have found and provided links for, below:
