Safeguarding and Prevent Training
This safeguarding awareness course is for all staff and students who might encounter or who have occasional contact with children or vulnerable adults as part of their work / placement. The course explains what is meant by the terms used, how to recognise abuse, how to reduce the risk of abuse, and what to do if you suspect abuse or if abuse is disclosed to you.
This 'safeguarding awareness' course contains four modules that will, in total, take around 1 hour to complete.
1. Recognising the signs of child abuse
2. Your role in reporting and preventing child abuse
3. Recognising the signs of adult abuse
4. Your role in reporting and preventing adult abuse.
