Safeguarding Children provides an outline of the relevant legislation relating to children, the reasons why a child may become known to social services or other agencies, and the steps that may be taken to ensure the childs welfare and wellbeing needs are met.

Case studies from real life events are used to provide students with an example of the kinds of issues facing those working in this challenging area. The course further discusses the communication techniques it is important for practitioners to have grasped before beginning work with service users.

Safeguarding children is an issue that people working in a wide range of disciplines need to be aware of.  The need to take measures to safeguard a child impinges on everyone in the education and child care sectors. This course will give you the theoretical background in terms of the essential legislation and advisory information to enable you to understand better the principal issues.
