Advantages of this course


  • As a society, we have a duty to protect children and young people from harm. This is often referred to as ‘safeguarding’ and every nation will have its own laws relating to safeguarding, which cascades down to a local level. As such, it is imperative that practitioners are aware of the relevant legislation, guidance, policies and procedures, and, importantly, know how to put it in to practice. This course will help to deepen understanding of safeguarding, and provides a specific guide to multi-agency working. 
  • Should there be concerns over the welfare of a child, staff should be equipped with the knowledge that will enable them to not only identify signs and symptoms of abuse but act appropriately. This course suggests reading, presentations, and additional information that will provide practical information and expand knowledge. 
  • Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
