The Complete Child Protection & Safeguarding Diploma
All children deserve to live free from fear of mistreatment, neglect and abuse. Unfortunately, thousands of UK children are exploited and abused on a daily basis. Anyone working with children must understand how abuse occurs, how to identify the signs and what to do if you suspect a child is a victim of abuse. This bundle will equip you with this knowledge, allowing you to safeguard children in your care.
If you work in a school, you also need to know how to physically intervene during a serious incident, without violating the child’s rights or compromising their wellbeing. This bundle will help you understand and implement positive handling in a safe, responsible manner.
What You Will Learn
This combined course includes the following:
- Child Neglect
- Child Protection
- Child Protection In Sport
- Child Sexual Exploitation
- Positive Handling In Schools
- Safeguarding Children
Almost 10% of UK children have experienced, or are currently experiencing, neglect. Neglect can have a profound negative impact on physical, emotional and social development. It can be difficult to identify, especially if the child has become adept at concealing it.
In this course, you will learn about the different forms of neglect, the risk factors that increase a child’s risk of neglect and the signs associated with each type of neglect. You will discover what you should do if you learn that a child is being neglected and how to report any concerns to the authorities.
Anyone who works with children has a legal obligation to remain vigilant in detecting and reporting abuse. In short, they must do all they can to protect children from harm. This course includes an overview of the laws designed to protect children and how these translate into everyday practice.
You will learn about the rights of children, as outlined in UK law and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The course explains how the safeguarding process works, the various forms of abuse children suffer and what parents and professionals can do if they suspect abuse.
Child Protection In Sport
If you work in the sports or leisure industries, you may have extensive contact with children and young people. This means that you have important child protection responsibilities. You need to know how to keep children safe from bullying and abuse and how to ensure that sport remains an enjoyable, healthy activity for all children in your care.
This course outlines the risks confronting children today, including bullying and radicalisation. You will learn how good administration practices can keep children safe, how to handle disclosure by a child and how to report abuse.
Child Sexual Exploitation
Thousands of UK children are at risk of sexual exploitation. Anyone who works with children and young people must be alert to the dangers and signs of sexual abuse. Often, a perpetrator is someone in a position of trust, although it is increasingly important to be aware of online exploitation and grooming.
This course outlines how and why perpetrators exploit children in this way and how to identify warning signs that a child is being subjected to sexual abuse. You will learn how a child’s behaviour and appearance can alert you to the possibility of abuse and how to respond to reports and allegations of exploitation.
Positive Handling In Schools
Student aggression and violence is a widespread concern in the education sector. Aggressive students may threaten the safety of others, property and themselves. When used appropriately, positive handling is an effective approach that facilitates speedy resolution of tense situations.
You learn what positive handling means and when it should be used. The course addresses the role of the SCARF model in defusing a situation and how the aggression curve can help you decide on the best course of action. It refers to UK legislation and government guidelines that help you judge when and how to intervene.
Child abuse has a significant negative impact on an individual’s physical and emotional health. Trauma resulting from abuse can affect victims well into adulthood. Safeguarding offers a useful framework that helps you understand how and why abuse occurs and how everyone can work together to prevent it.
You will learn about the various forms of child abuse and who is most likely to abuse a child. You will learn how to spot the signs that a child is being mistreated, how to report abuse and how to engage with a child who has been victimised.
