SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN
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.
Did you know: At least 750,000 children in the UK witness domestic violence per year. Children who live with domestic violence are at increased risk of behaviour problems and emotional trauma, and mental health difficulties in adult life.
After successfully completing the course you will receive an e-certificate that you can download onto your device.
