Course Description

Safeguarding Children is aimed at workers who are likely to meet children at risk of abuse. This could be in a residential or school setting or in the children’s homes.

This course can be undertaken either by professionals or volunteers who work with vulnerable children.

Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility. This course will help you identify the signs of neglect and abuse a child in your care may suffer, how to identify the signs of neglect, and how to respond and act if you suspect a child of being abused or neglected.

Training outcomes

  • Know about child protection issues, including definitions, indicators, legislation, guidance and processes.
  • Understand the importance of children’s rights as reflected in legislation and key statutory and non-statutory guidance.
  • Understand what is meant by child development in the context of safeguarding.
  • Understand the scale of abuse and the types and potential signs of child maltreatment within the context of normal child development.
  • Know how abuse and neglect can impact on children’s development and how to recognise this.
  • Have a greater awareness of the potential risk factors which may increase the likelihood of abuse in children’s lives.
  • Have a greater understanding of the additional vulnerabilities of looked-after children as a result of their experiences of abuse in childhood, and know best how to support them and meet their needs (or to achieve stability and recover from abuse).
