The Awareness in Safeguarding course aims to increase understanding of child protection processes and improve practitioners’ confidence.
The courses are designed for:

At the end of the session, participants 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, its impact, and how to recognise the signs and indicators
- A clear understanding of what do if someone has concerns about a child in Devon or if a child makes a disclosure
- An improved knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of individuals and organisations
- A greater awareness of child protection processes, including: identification, responding, recording and reporting
