An Introduction to Safe Guarding Children
What is an Introduction to Safe Guarding Children?
This is a one day introductory training course delivered by a qualified and registered Independent Social Worker with extensive working knowledge and experience in the field of child protection. The course is ideal for anyone working with children.

An Introduction to Safe Guarding Children is aimed at those working in the community with children wanting to know how to provide a safe environment in which they can work safely with children.

The course will consider:
- The history and prevalence of child abuse
- Definitions, signs and symptoms of child abuse

- Safe Guarding policy, procedure and government initiatives
- The responsibility of individuals towards safe guarding children
