Safeguarding Children Online Training Introduction

Welcome to this Safeguarding Children course. During this training 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.

Everyone, regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity, or background has the right to a health happy life. Safeguarding is a term that describes the work and processes undertaken to minimise and manage the risks to vulnerable individuals with the aim of ensuring these most basic human rights are met.

Legislation and government guidance define safeguarding as:

  • the protection of all individuals from ill treatment
  • implementing measures that prevent the impairment of an individual’s well-being and development
  • taking the appropriate action to ensure the best outcome for vulnerable people
  • to ensure every person’s environment and circumstances are consistent with the provision of safe and effect measures

There are many types of training in relation to safeguarding however they can be split up into two basic areas: Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Safeguarding Children. If you work with or come in to contact with vulnerable adults, then you will need the Safeguarding Adults course.
