Safeguarding Children (Awareness) – for Health and Social Care

This thorough five-part safeguarding child protection course combines practice-based scenarios and focused questions with informative videos to help to bring the content to life. The bite-sized units cover things like child maltreatment, the effects of parental, family and career factors, domestic abuse, mental and physical ill-health, substance and alcohol abuse, acting on concerns and the importance of information sharing, online risks and legislation.

As the knowledge element of standard 11 of the Care Certificate is covered, you can be reassured that you’ll gain an increased understanding of issues surrounding safeguarding and – most importantly – how best to deal with suspected abuse.

This course meets the national minimum training standards for Safeguarding Children at Level 1 as set out in “Safeguarding Children and Young people: roles and competences for health care staff.” (Intercollegiate Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health 2014).
