Welcome to the Gateshead Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) e-learning site, developed in conjunction with the Safeguarding Children e-Academy.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those who work in Gateshead to engage in online Safeguarding training that allows for the learner to learn flexibly, interactively, and at their own pace. Gateshead LSCB would particularly like to encourage those who work remotely or find it challenging to get to training venues to access the e-learning opportunities available.
