Safeguarding Children Level 1
This course covers the core information for Level 1 Safeguarding Children. It introduces safeguarding as a subject and covers key safeguarding topics, such as the national and local context, jargon and key terms, multi-agency working and best practice.
This training also advises how to identify the signs and symptoms of abuse and what you should do if you suspect a child is being abuse or if they disclose information.
As well as covering all these topics, it also focuses on your role and what you can do to recognise and reduce the likelihood of abuse. The final part explores how to deal with suspected and disclosed abuse at Level 1.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.

We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
