Cancelled! Safeguarding Children and Young People Level 1

Thursday 07 March 2019
09:30 to 14:30

Safeguarding children is everybody’s business and it is essential that professionals in the voluntary sector who have contact with children are clear about their duties and responsibilities.

This course provides an overview of the current safeguarding system (including local and national guidance and data) and explores the difference between safeguarding children and child protection. It provides up to date, practical information to enable you to create and sustain safer environments for children and your workforce.

This workshop aims to promote professional resilience, confidence and competence when working with vulnerable children and their families and assist in the delivery of Croydon’s early help strategy, including references to key local guidance and resources. Participants are given tools to be able to recognise some of the key signs and risk indicators of child abuse and opportunities to explore what to do if you have child protection concerns, including who to refer to and how.

Although this workshop covers all aspects of Safeguarding Children at level 1, the focus is on young people, and is particularly suited to anyone working with children aged 10 - 18.
