Latest news

August 2019 - The resources have been updated - trainers should receive an email during mid August with a new password. The refresher materials will be updated as soon as possible.  

May 2019 - The updated Guidance for Safer Working Practice (2019) is available on the home page; please click here to download a version with the main changes highlighted

May 2019 - we have had a significant increase in requests for the SR training materials for the adult workforce - you can now download these from the Services page using your usual log in & password.

October 2018 - Those trainers who use the 'official' consortium refresher materials can now request the updated version - email us or use the contact form to request. The wider children's workforce version Oct 2018 has now been uploaded to the services page with a table of changes; although the training notes are not yet complete you should be able to make sense of the course based on the education training notes.    

September 2018The Consortium task group has been working hard over the Summer to update all materials in line with KCSiE 2018, WT 2018, Disqualification under the Childcare Act 2006 (2018) and the new information sharing guidance. Accredited trainers should have received an email with their new password & log in during week commencing 3rd Sept.   

We have changed the way accredited trainers access these resources; in January and September 2018 you should have received a log-in and password to enable you to download the resources directly from the 'services' page on this website (along with a control sheet so you can quickly see what changes we have made). If you have not received an email from LFF with a password, please contact us. New trainers are also given a password once they have completed the T4T course and returned their signed trainer agreement. 

Trainers previously accredited by NCSL, CWDC or the Lucy Faithfull Foundation can still access these by registering with LFF - contact by email at [email protected] Once you have completed a registration form and submitted this along with a copy of your T4T certificate, you will be sent a copy of the Trainers' Code of Conduct to sign and the materials will be yours soon after.
