THE ATHENA PROGRAMME CONTINUES TO...
As The Athena Programme goes from strength
Whether you work face-to-face with children and young people, or come into contact with them only occasionally, then Safeguarding Children Level 1 is a legal requirement. This course is designed to enable you to comply with statutory guidance and designed to protect and promote the safety and welfare of children.
Safeguarding Children Level 1 will be of interest to anyone who works with children, for example, teachers, nursery education workers, youth workers, volunteers, family centre workers, faith groups and community workers. If you work with adults who have children, e.g. health visitor, support worker etc. this course is ideally suited to you.
At the end of the course you will be familiar with current legislation and guidance surrounding safeguarding children, know the signs and symptoms to look out for, know what to do if you are worried that a child is being harmed, know how to respond to a child who tells you that he or she is being abused, and how to share and record information to safeguard children.
If you have completed your Safeguarding Children Level 1 and need to know more about safeguarding children, then Safeguarding Children Level 2 is for you.
Designed for people who want more responsibility for safeguarding children, this course covers roles and responsibilities in depth. If you are working towards a senior safeguarding role in your organisation e.g. Safeguarding Champion, Designated Person etc. then this course will assist you.
From this course you will gain detailed knowledge of legislation and guidance relating to the child protection process (Section 17 and Section 47 enquiries), the importance of child development and attachment theory in assessments, and awareness of what is involved in taking part in a child protection conference.
