Our Safeguarding courses have been created because, first and foremost, each and every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy, and treated well, regardless of race, age, gender, or location. When these rights are abused in some way it’s wrong, and it is therefore vital that guidelines, policies, and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.
Everyone, regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity, or background has the right to a healthy, happy life. Safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals.
Who is the safeguarding course online aimed at?
The online Safeguarding Children course is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for or comes into contact with children in their chosen profession.
Although most children are brought up in loving, nurturing environments and grow up to lead happy lives, the subject has to be discussed in order to better protect those children that need it most.
During this safeguarding course online, you will hear many facts, figures, and details surrounding the risk to children, the types of abuse suffered, how to recognise the signs of abuse, and key safeguarding legislations put in place to minimise the abuse of children.
Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse and know the steps you should take if you suspect it, you will be better able to protect the children in your care.
