  • Become confident in our roles and responsibilities in terms of mental health among our student.
  • Encourage young people to feel good about their bodies.

Trainer: Beth Davies

Beth has a passion for demystifying safeguarding, believing strongly that confidence is the key to truly embedding that ‘golden thread’ of safeguarding throughout education. She believes in empowering each individual, uniquely placed in their role across education and childcare to recognise that they play a valuable role in safeguarding children.

In order to achieve this, she helps take the sting out of safeguarding, reminding professionals of the reason why they chose to work with children originally. Having counselling training combined with a wealth of on-the-ground experience working with at-risk groups, Beth brings a down-to-earth and empathic approach to training. From creating and leading empowerment workshops for young victims of exploitation in rural Kenya to supporting looked after children involved in exploitation across the West Midlands in the UK, Beth is passionate about supporting young people to thrive, using creative methods. Having a wealth of knowledge about Online Safety and developing trends that can place young people at risk, she helps teachers to navigate the interwoven worlds of online and offline risks. Beth currently spends her time supporting and training a wide range of education providers including special needs schools as well as multi-academy trusts and thoroughly relishes the opportunity to encourage and empower those working hard to keep children safe. Despite having worked within education for several years, Beth finds her previous roles working in the charity sector help her to have a holistic approach to safeguarding. Having experience working within addiction recovery, anti-human trafficking and advocacy for refugees, she is passionate about the impact and lifelong rewards that come with Early Intervention.
