Course Description

The aim of this course is to provide a clear understanding of Safeguarding and child protection for those in contact with children and young people. It seeks to provide you with a confidence in safeguarding and in doing so, protect children in your work place or those you may come into contact with.

This course is for all staff who work in a variety of roles with children, young people and/or their parents/carers or an adult who could pose a risk to children.
