About this Course

Safeguarding children means protecting them from abuse. This course covers the roles, responsibilities and rights regarding safeguarding children. It will provide the necessary skills and competences that you require to keep children safe.

According to the WHO estimate, up to 1 billion children between the ages of 2 and 17 years suffer physical, emotional, or sexual violence. 1 in 3 of these children never tell anyone. Therefore, it is crucial that you understand the importance of speaking up and know how to detect and report different kinds of abuse to ensure that the issue is addressed.

Every child and young person up to the age of 18, regardless of gender, race, religion, or disability has a right to be given protection, safety, and care. Anybody working or interacting with children frequently, either at their workplace or at home, needs to be aware of safeguarding policies and practices.

This course is suitable for anyone working with infants, children or young adults as part of their job, including teachers, playgroup leaders, childcare providers, nannies and child-minders. It can also be used as part of the on-programme element of the new apprenticeship standards.

The Children and Young Persons Act 2008 deals with safeguarding children.

A safeguarding policy is a strategy that an organisation comes up with to ensure the safety of children under its care.

You will likely need a DBS check if you work with children. It is a good idea to get a DPS check done in advance and keep it handy if you plan to apply for a job which involves working around children.

‘Safeguarding’ is a set of guidelines regarding the safety of children. Whereas, ‘duty of care’ is a paid carer’s legal responsibility. Failure to fulfil duty to care leads to legal action.

A learning management system or LMS is a software application for the administration, tracking, reporting, automation, and delivery of learning content. It is the system that learners will log into, to access their courses, and administrators will use to manage their learners.

We have worked in partnership with many businesses and organisations and have gained a unique understanding of the challenges they face while delivering training to a workforce. This has allowed us to create a flexible system which can be modified according to the needs of your company.
