With this Statutory & Mandatory Training: Safeguarding Children course, learn about child protection issues including definitions, indicators, guidance both for statutory and non-statutory, processes and legislation including a child’s rights as reflected in these. In addition, understand what child development means in the context of safeguarding and the additional vulnerabilities look-after children may have after childhood abuse and how to support them.
Safeguarding Children is aimed at workers who are likely to meet children at risk of abuse. This could be in a residential or school setting or in the children’s homes.
This course can be undertaken either by professionals or volunteers who work with vulnerable children.
Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility. This course will help you identify the signs of neglect and abuse a child in your care may suffer, how to identify the signs of neglect, and how to respond and act if you suspect a child of being abused or neglected.
This course is accredited by CPD. The certificate, awarded upon successful completion, can be used to log your hours against.
