Every human has a right to be treated in a fair and just manner, with respect. It is not a complicated or too challenging idea, but it is one that people should understand and agree with, regardless of who they are. But, unfortunately, it often feels like this fundamental right is being taken away from people in today's world.

Safeguarding children is not a new concept. Society has been trying to protect its youngest members from harm for centuries. It exposes fundamental values, rights, duties and obligations that transcend time and cultures. The welfare of society's most vulnerable members should be the principal concern for everyone because there can be no future or prosperity without them.

Therefore, guidelines, policies, and procedures must be followed to ensure everyone in society can live to their full potential without abuse. In this Safeguarding Children course, you will learn what is meant by safeguarding children and why it is the responsibility of all in society.

What Safeguarding Children course offers:

This Safeguarding Children course is aimed at all adults who come into contact with children in their professional or personal capacities. It will explain why safeguarding is essential, how professionals can keep children safer, and advise recognising signs of abuse at home or in the community.

What Safeguarding Children course covers:

  • Why safeguarding is important
  • How professionals can keep children safer
  • Recognising signs of abuse at home or in the community
  • What to do if you think a child is being abused
  • Supporting parents, carers and young people involved
  • Developing effective working partnerships
  • What happens if a child tells you about abuse
  • Getting the right help at the right time.

Safeguarding is about minimising and mitigating the risks to vulnerable individuals. It is done by raising awareness of the risks, preventing risks from happening where possible, and taking action when a threat does happen.

Safeguarding is about being proactive, not reactive.

Safeguarding is about showing respect for the rights and dignity of every individual; it is about recognised that everybody has different needs in different circumstances.

During this Safeguarding Children course, you will learn about some of the critical risks children face and what signs to look for to ward off abuse. You'll also learn about safeguarding legislation, your responsibilities if you work with children, and the types of abuse, including sexual exploitation.

Inspire London College created this Safeguarding Children course, especially for anyone who spends time working with children, whether you're a parent or someone who volunteers at school or in childcare.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
