Safeguarding Online Training Course
Safeguarding: – Course Overview
What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Having safeguards in place within an organisation protects and promotes the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. It also enhances the confidence of trustees, staff, volunteers, parents/carers and the general public.
Children and vulnerable adults are less able to protect themselves than others, making them vulnerable to abuse. Research indicates that abuse and neglect are both under-reported and under-recorded. Inquiries into circumstances where abuse and neglect occurred have identified failings in how children and vulnerable adults are protected from harm.
To address these failings, people who come into contact with children and vulnerable adults as part of their paid employment or voluntary work, must have appropriate training in safeguarding procedures.
This eLearning Safeguarding Training covers:
- What safeguarding is, and the role users play.
- The different types of abuse and how to recognise the signs and symptoms.
- What you should do if they have concerns for the safety of a child or vulnerable adult.
Safeguarding: – Suitable For
