We are now offering safeguarding awareness courses in Brighton, Hove, Worthing, Wimbledon as well as the rest of Sussex, Surrey and London.

Protecting and safeguarding the welfare of children placed within your care has to be paramount to becoming a successful and competent childcare worker.

Our interactive safeguarding and child protection workshops are designed to help people who come into contact with or work with children understand how to spot and respond to child abuse as well as highlighting the next steps which need to be taken in order to further safeguard the child from harm.

What’s covered within the safeguarding workshops?
  • Child protection law
  • Complexities of abuse
  • Categories & indicators of abuse
  • Pieces of the jigsaw and serious case reviews
  • What to do if you suspect something
  • Disclosures in children
  • The impact of the abuse
  • Safe practice and key contacts
Who should attend a safeguarding workshop?

Anyone who has contact with children and/or young people, including: parents, Early Years professionals, childcare practitioners, baby professionals, school staff, church workers, voluntary workers, play leaders, youth workers, community workers, sports coaches etc. Note: As this safeguarding / child protection workshop underpins national occupational standards for Early Years and play work practitioners it’s perfect for training school staff and inset days.
