Consultancy and Training in Safeguarding

Sound SystemsReal Time Education in collaboration with Young Solutions is now able to offer the NCVYS National Quality Assurance Kite Mark for safeguarding called Sound Systems

Endorsed by Children England and the National Youth Agency and adopted by organisations including the Scouts and Sea Cadets as well as many smaller voluntary and community organisations, the Sound Systems whole organisation approach provides a quality Kite Mark for safeguarding recognised by Councils across England.

Organisations are able to achieve the Sound Systems Accreditation quality mark by providing evidence that they have robust policies in place for:

  • Safeguarding
  • Codes of Conduct
  • Confidentiality, Sharing Information, Whistleblowing and Complaints
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Anti-bullying
  • Youth Participation
  • Health, Safety and Welfare
  • Recruitment and
  • Reporting Concerns, Suspicions and Allegations

The Sound Systems Accreditation requires organisations to perform robust self- and peer-assessment processes which will ensure that safeguarding standards are communicated, effective, embedded across the organisation, monitored, evaluated and young people focussed. We are able to offer pre-registration guidance, mentoring support to prepare for the Sound Systems assessment as well as performing the Sound Systems assessment itself.
