We are delighted to launch our new Safeguarding & Safety in Education training course. This course has been designed especially for Athona after enquires from Ofsted to our clients had been made regarding if such training had been completed by their contracted staff.

Helping You To Develop Your Career

By completing our online training course, you arrive at your placement, fully prepared and compliant with key health and safety legislative requirements, allowing you to hit the ground running. We also provide a certificate confirming your successful completion of the training course.

Our course is available for every applicant registered with Athona for £15 and is FREE for any candidate that has worked for a minimum of one term with us – our way of saying thank you for your loyalty. This includes early years and support staff, primary teachers, secondary teachers and further education lecturers.
