Course Introduction

The EssentialSkillz Safeguarding Children’s eLearning course provides an introduction to the safeguarding process. In the past, safeguarding procedures were not as effective as they are today.

New regulations such as the Children Act and the statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children now place a bigger responsibility on organisations and agencies to work together to protect children and young people from harm.

This Safeguarding Children Online Training course takes on average 70 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The Safeguarding Children online course describes the different types of abuse—physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect—and what signs and symptoms to look out for.

The course provides a wide range of scenarios to give a clearer picture of what these forms of abuse might look like.

Identifying the signs and symptoms of abuse is critical in order to protect children’s health and development and overall wellbeing.

The Safeguarding Children training gives advice on how to respond if child abuse is suspected or if you are told about abuse.

Anyone who works with or around children is a part of the safeguarding process and has an obligation to report abuse and share information with other organisations and agencies to safeguard children.

Professionals working with children might also find themselves in a situation where an allegation is made against them. They will learn about allegation criteria, what happens after a claim has been made and what type of conduct is appropriate when working with children.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Safeguarding Children eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
