Safeguarding Child Basic Awareness

A safeguarding children awareness course suitable for everyone working with children and young people. This would suit those working in both corporate organisations and the voluntary sector. During the course we will explore many factors present within safeguarding, and explore some legislation. It is vital when thinking about safeguarding that we acknowledge unconscious bias, so this will also be explored in discussion.

In addition to this we will cover how to recognise, respond, report and record our concerns, often referred to as "4 R's of safeguarding" We will also explore risk factors for abuse and how to share information appropriately. It is equally important we are alert to the behaviour of fellow colleagues and professionals, so during the course we will also highlight the importance of whistleblowing.  

Policies are essential, but we have to remember it isnt the policy that keeps children safe. It's staff understanding their role and knowing when (and how) to follow up on a suspicion or disclosure of abuse. 

Depending on your role, this may be the only level of training you need, although if you are wishing to act as a designated safeguarding officer you will need additional training.

A digital handout will be sent to the organisation via email. It is also possible to have this as a virtual session, it is still a "live lesson" in the sense its fully interactive but it can be held remotely on zoom if required.
