This online course covers the safeguarding responsibilities of everyone working in residential childcare. We look at why it’s important to protect children and young people from harm and abuse and the policies and procedures both you and your organisation should follow.
You will learn about different types of abuse; we examine the motivations and behaviours of perpetrators and why early identification is so important. We cover bullying, sexual exploitation and human trafficking including how these can begin, or be facilitated online and the support children and young people will need in order to identify, report and recover from them.
You are important too, so we consider your responsibilities, how to report your concerns and ways you can support children and young people to develop resilience, self-confidence and self-esteem.
