Welcome to the new ‘Teeswide Safeguarding All’ suite of e-learning safeguarding courses in conjunction with Me-Learning.
The Adults & Children Safeguarding Partner Organisations across Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees actively support the ‘Think Family’ approach and are committed to the continuous learning and development of all staff and volunteers working with vulnerable people: adults, children, young people and families.
Through this site you will be able to view, select and be given immediate access to a range of e-learning opportunities.
What courses are available?
You can view a list of e-learning courses here: Course Directory
What does it cost?
All courses are currently free of charge for staff and volunteers working within the Tees area in Statutory, Voluntary or Not for Profit Organisations. Please note that Commissioned Care Providers, Nurseries, Academies and Independent Schools are not considered as Private / For Profit organisations and can access the e-learning free of charge.
How long will it take?
Course times vary, but take between 30 minutes and 2.45 hours to complete with a short test at the end. If you have passed then you will be able to print a certificate of completion. You do not have to complete the training all at once, you can dip in and out of the module, at work or at home and the system will monitor your progress.
Once you start your e-learning course you have 4 weeks to complete it, therefore we recommend that you only request one course at a time. If you do not complete the course within 4 weeks you or your line manager may be charged for the cost of the course.
How do I access the training?
**Please note that all previous Virtual College e-learning accounts have now been closed. All users will need to register with Me-Learning in order to access the training**
We strongly recommend that you’re using Google Chrome as your browser as this gives the best learning experience for our online courses.
