Who Should take this course
It is recommended that those with designated responsibility for safeguarding children refresh their knowledge every two years. This course is suitable for anyone who works with children, particularly those who are responsible for child protection procedures in their workplace.
This safeguarding children course is intended as a refresher. If you have not yet completed any safeguarding children training, try our Introduction to Safeguarding Children course first which is more suitable for those who have no prior knowledge of child protection.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.l
The course is divided into five accessible, interactive modules and includes an assessment at the end:
- Introduction – the Victoria Climbie inquiry report, the Peter Connolly serious case review and its findings and reasons for taking this child protection refresher course.
- Key concepts and structures – definition of safeguarding children, the safeguarding structure, legal structure, your own role in safeguarding children and the role of social services.
- Recognising child abuse and neglect – definitions of the different types of child abuse and case scenarios to show how you can recognise each type in everyday life.
- Responding to safeguarding concerns – first steps in responding to concerns about child abuse, who to talk to and what information to share, talking to the child and their parents and what to do if a child tells you something or you have concerns about another professional.
- Referrals to social services – what happens next if you make a referral to social services, using a case scenario as an example.
The online assessment is taken on completion of the training material. You will be asked 12 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 75%. The answers are marked automatically so you will instantly know whether you have passed. If you don't pass don't worry! You can take the test as many times as you need with no extra charge.
