CONTENT & OVERVIEW
This is a knowledge-only qualification. Work experience is not necessary.
You may have completed numerous courses on safeguarding before – this is not a static subject. New threats emerge and better ways of working are developed that help to reduce the likelihood of harm and abuse happening to children, young people and vulnerable adults. The ‘new threats’ of our time include cyber-bullying and cyberstalking, as well as online grooming for sexual exploitation. They also include the radicalisation of children and young people by extremists. This important course combines three inter-related themes: safeguarding in general; online safety; and the Prevent duty. The latter places a duty on educational providers and other public bodies to help prevent children, young people and vulnerable adults from being radicalised and drawn into terrorism. To achieve this qualification, you are required to successfully complete 3 mandatory units by producing online written assignments and tasks.
Unit 01: Understanding the Prevent duty
Unit 02: Understanding safeguarding
Unit 03: Understanding online safety
Anyone who has a responsibility for safeguarding children, young people or vulnerable adults. It will be particularly useful if you work in a training /educational setting, youth work or if you are involved in running sports teams and community groups.
