Safeguarding And Child Protection Skills training

This course enables learners to understand child protection and what to do if they suspect a child or young person is being harmed. It helps them to reflect on their own role in safeguarding children, and to understand how to work with other agencies.

The Children Acts of 1989 and 2004 place a duty on all organisations who have the responsibility to work with young people to ensure the safeguarding of children in their area. Whilst local authorities play a lead role, safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a significant role to play in safeguarding children.

This course also covers the statutory requirements set out in the government guidance Working together to safeguard children 2018.

A thorough grounding in child protection skills is therefore vital for anyone whose role directly involves child protection, and useful for everyone working in close contact with children.
