Please note these courses may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances – if a date has to be cancelled and rearranged, any delegates booked to attend will be contacted about this by the Learning and Skills Service.  If you’d like to sign up for a course, please fill in the Nomination Form 2023-24 and send it to the Learning & Skills Service at the email address shown below.

Safeguarding E-Learning

SSAB’s e-Learning now offers an expanded range of safeguarding courses which have been commissioned from Virtual College.  It is accessed via an easy self-registration process.  Please only sign up for and complete one course at a time, to enable the courses to be accessible to everyone equally, as the e-learning licences are not unlimited.

You can access the eLearning offer (which is available to access every day, all year round) by registering here.

If you’ve already registered, you can access the log-in page here.

If you have any technical difficulties logging in, there is a help function on the Virtual College website.
