This course, which is approved by the Devon Children & Families Partnership, is crucial to anyone working with children and young people in the voluntary sector – paid or unpaid.
Target group: Those who work regularly, or have a period of intense but regular contact with children and young people or with staff who may be in a position to identify concerns and who may be expected to contribute to the assessment of the child’s developmental needs or the adult’s parenting capacity.
At the end of this session you will have:-
- a better understanding of the legislative frameworks and guidance in safeguarding children and young people
- a greater awareness of the types of abuse and neglect which children and young people may experience and its impact and how to recognise the signs and indicators.
- a clear understanding of what to do if someone has concerns about a child in Devon or a child makes a disclosure and the processes involved.
- an improved knowledge about the roles and responsibilities of individuals, organisations and Devon Children and Families Partnership, including identifying, reporting, recording, sharing information.
