Legislation such as the Children Act 2004 places duties on a range of organisations to ensure they safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes the need for appropriate safeguarding training.

This course can help employers show that your organisation is being responsible and ensuring that staff are competent to carry out their responsibilities towards safeguarding.

The course will help to increase your safeguarding knowledge through a variety of interactive exercises and teach you more about what’s involved in the safeguarding process.

We will help you know how to identify abuse and report concerns as well as learn more about the safeguarding structure, recognising risks.
