Our Safeguarding qualification covers how to safeguard and protect children, young people and practitioners in the workplace. We look at how to respond to evidence or concerns that a child or young person has been abused, and reporting procedures that must be followed.
The Childrens Act 2004 requires organisations to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes the need for appropriate safeguarding training, as employers are responsible for ensuring staff are competent to carry out their responsibilities.
From an update released on the 24th August 2016, Ofsted have also stipulated that:
“During term time, or when the setting is in operation, the designated safeguarding lead or an appropriately trained deputy should be available during opening hours for staff to discuss safeguarding concerns.”
This course is suitable for learners working, or wishing to work, with children and young people, includeing those in voluntary or unpaid positions.
All candidates receive a certificate confirming completion of the relevant topics and employers also receive a certificate to display on site.
