Background: Adolescent safeguarding is a key public health issue, which requires a transdisciplinary approach to address the range of safeguarding risks seen within this critical period of development.
Aims: The aim of this research study was to explore the need for adolescent safeguarding education within transdisciplinary programmes.

Methods: A qualitative descriptive study was undertaken with participants studying or teaching on nursing, policing, social work, youth work and teaching programmes at a North West University in England. Participation involved either the completion of an JISC online questionnaire or an informal interview, the data of which was analysed using thematic analysis.

Findings: Two key themes were identified in the data; safeguarding education and professional culture, and three subthemes: curriculum content and delivery and professional identity.

Conclusions: This study has highlighted the need to adopt a life course (adolescence) and hybrid approach (uniprofessional and transdisciplinary) to safeguarding education in transdisciplinary programmes.
