Our safeguarding courses have been created because, first and foremost, each and every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, gender or location. When these rights are abused in some way, it is vital that guidelines, policies and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception, has the right to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.
Safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals.
WHAT DOES THIS COURSE COVER?
This course is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for, or comes into contact, with children in their chosen profession or when they volunteer.
Although most children are brought up in loving, nurturing environments and grow up to lead happy lives, others will need our protection. During this course, you will hear many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to children, the types of abuse they can suffer, how to recognise the signs of abuse and key safeguarding legislation that has been put into place to minimize the abuse of children.
Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse and know the steps you should take if you suspect it, you will be better able to protect the children in your care.
