Five days a week, thirty-nine weeks of the year: that’s how long the average child spends at school, so it’s hugely important that each and every one of them feels safe, valued, and protected. Not to mention, parents need to be able to feel confident that their children are in an environment that will give them the freedom to learn and achieve their full potential.
On this level 1 course, you’ll discover how to prevent and detect harm to children
You’ll examine different types of abuse, the tell-tale signs, and the procedures that need to be followed to report it. You’ll study key legislation which protects young people from harm, as well as how you can help them to stay safe from dangers such as cyber-bullying. This distance learning course is essential for those who come into contact with children as part of their working role including voluntary work and those who work with children on a daily basis e.g. teachers, dental staff, nursery nurses, child-minders, foster carers, teaching assistants or administration staff. It’s a knowledge-only qualification suitable for learners aged 14 and above, no real work environment placement is required, and you can study online from home.
