Online Safeguarding Audit: important update

For the attention of: S11 Safeguarding Audit users who are amending audits following moderation and Schools & Colleges Safeguarding Audit users who are still completing their audits.

Following a recent upgrade to the Audit Tool, a number of questions have been raised about how the system works.

1) Updating a question which has already been marked as complete: 
If you wish to amend a question or action plans associated with questions which have previously been marked as complete, you will need to change the status of the question to “In Progress”.  At present, you will not be able to change the status of the question back to complete, unless the action plan is complete.  We are planning a further system upgrade to improve flexibility and allow questions with incomplete action plans to be marked as complete.  This will be released on the 30th April.

2) Document uploads:
Currently document uploads are limited to 5MB.  The limit will be increasing to 75MB on 20th April.

If you have any questions please contact Virtual College on 01943 885083 or healthandsocialcare@virtual-college.co.uk
