Safeguarding children responder training

Safeguarding children is a key legislative requirement for any organisation working directly with children and young people. This programme of learning will identify the key issues for your staff team and provide guidance to ensure your team understand their own responsibilities for safeguarding children.

Staff will be knowledgeable about the common signs and symptoms associated with the different categories of child abuse and will be able to identify the most common signs and symptoms that require reporting. Your organisation’s policy and procedures regarding safeguarding, whistleblowing and sharing of information during the reporting processes will be highlighted with clear good practice guidance for each step of the process.

Course outline

The video presentation will increase your teams understanding of their responsibilities in safeguarding children and young people who they encounter within their working role. It will identify the types and signs of abuse and explore the most relevant legislation and good practice for safeguarding children. Clear guidance about how to respond appropriately to a suspicion, incident or disclosure of abuse will be provided to support staff to report concerns. The importance of maintaining boundaries when working with children and young people will be presented to promote safe working practices that keep both the child and staff safe.

The interactive session will apply the learning from the video to your team’s context and create practical opportunities to actively practise the key skills necessary to recognise, respond, report and record child concerns. Case studies and scenarios relevant to your team’s situations will enable your staff to develop the skills and confidence to identify and respond to concerns appropriately using internal procedures for reporting and external processes for referring to local authority safeguarding teams. The process that the local authority follow when initiating a section 47 enquiry will be explored using an interactive exercise that will highlight each stage of the process and how you can support a family at each stage.

The interactive learning resources will support you staff to deepen their knowledge about the child protection processes in place and build confidence in spotting the signs of abuse that they may need to report internally and externally. The organisations policy and procedures for safeguarding will be referenced for staff to access as part of their self directed learning and a quiz will evidence the learning and generate certification.
