Why Study Safeguarding Children?

The safety and wellbeing of children must be the top priority for those who work with, care for or educate children of any age.  All too often, the warning signs of abuse or mistreatment are overlooked or ignored.  By the time action is taken to safeguard a victim of abuse, the physical and psychological damage endured may be irreversible.  Consequently, it is the responsibility of those who come into contact with children on a regular basis to adopt a proactive approach.  Prevention of abuse and mistreatment is the only effective way to protect children from potential harm.  Being able to spot the potential signs of abuse is therefore paramount, for anyone who works with, cares for, or supports children in any way.  Ideal for newcomers and experienced candidates, this free child safeguarding course provides an essential overview of the basics of child protection.

This Safeguarding Children course covers the following key topics:

  • Who is Responsible for Safeguarding?
  • What is Safeguarding?
  • What is the Purpose of Child Safeguarding?
  • The Six Safeguarding Principles
  • Type of Actions if There is a Concern for Safeguarding a Child
  • What is Considered Neglect from a Child Safeguarding Perspective?
  • Safeguarding Responsibilities of School Staff
  • The Safeguarding Responsibilities of Teachers
