Did you know that according to NSPCC, unfortunately, one in five children have experienced abuse at some point in their lifetime? That’s why anyone working with children or families are legally required to have knowledge of how to safeguard children and take a Safeguarding Children training course. This knowledge can help protect and prevent children from experiencing abuse and neglect which in turn could change, or in some cases save the lives of children.
Our Safeguarding Children training course covers how to recognise signs of abuse, key safeguarding legislation, the steps to appropriately respond to any safeguarding concerns and the importance of speaking up and acting quickly. Upon successful completion of this online course, learners will be awarded a CPD accredited Safeguarding Children certificate and can be used to provide evidence for compliance.
