Safeguarding for children is a term that describes the process undertaken to minimise the risk of abuse to vulnerable children. This Safeguarding Children Course specifically focuses on issues faced by those under the age of 18 years.
This Safeguarding for Children Training Course is suitable to a wide range of professions including those persons in health and social care, education, childcare, community services, volunteers, charities, local authority workers and social housing providers.
The aim of the course is to raise the delegates’ awareness of the different types of abuse both physical, sexual and mental, the detection signs and correct reporting systems to prevent abuse wherever possible. The course is formulated in recognition of the Care Act 2014.
Upon completion of the course, the learner will be able to recognise warning signs in vulnerable children with a view to protecting them from harm and abuse. The course also covers what to do once it has been identified that a child may have safe guarding needs including the resources available, confidentiality, support networks and reporting.
In short, child safeguarding is about looking out for the young people around us and protecting them from harm.
This course can be delivered either online or a classroom session tailored to your specific needs.
