Everyone shares responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, irrespective of individual roles. This course is for those who have already completed a Level 1 course and need to gain an advanced knowledge of Child Protection, including working towards becoming a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), manager or policy writer.
This course is designed for individuals who work with children in either a paid or voluntary capacity. It relates to the issues surrounding safeguarding children by exploring the concepts of "child vulnerability", "child protection" and "significant harm"; coupled with the individual and organisational responsibilities of protecting children from abuse.
Building on these concepts child abuse is explored and the four main forms of abuse, namely: physical abuse; emotional abuse; sexual abuse and neglect are explored. In addition the problem of bullying is investigated. The course will enable students to recognise the signs of child abuse by focusing on examples as well as the behavioural and physical indicators.
The legislation that underpins child protection is briefly explored.
A practical approach is taken to identify responsibilities in handling the disclosure, recording and reporting of abuse by children. Many practical examples are provided to help adults caring for children to handle and manage the difficult situation of disclosure with encouragement to develop personal checklists for these situations.
By the end of the day, through exploring real-life scenarios, individuals will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to recognise the signs and symptoms of child vulnerability and abuse.
