Safeguarding Children Online Training Course
Safeguarding Children: – Course Overview
In the past, safeguarding procedures were not as effective as they are today. New regulations such as the Children Act and the statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children now place a bigger responsibility on organisations and agencies to work together to protect children and young people from harm. Anyone who works with or around children is a part of the safeguarding process and has an obligation to report abuse and share information with other organisations and agencies to safeguard children.
The Safeguarding Children course explains:
- The different types of abuse—physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect—and what signs and symptoms to look out for.
- A wide range of scenarios to give a clearer picture of what these forms of abuse might look like.
- How to respond if child abuse is suspected or if you are told about abuse.
- What to do if an allegation is made against you and what behaviour is appropriate when working with children.
Safeguarding Children: – Suitable for
All employees in an organisation have a responsibility under the Safeguarding process to identify and report suspected instances of abuse. However, this online Safeguarding Children course is particularly appropriate for individuals whose job role involves working with children, whether on a full-time, part-time or volunteer basis.
