Safeguarding Children Refresher Training
It is a statutory requirement for anyone who works with children to update their knowledge of legislation and guidance and maintain the ability to act on concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people. The government guidance suggests that refresher training should take place every three years. Whilst necessary, this can be costly for organisations and frustrating for staff, who may have heavy case loads and find it difficult to get away from work to attend a refresher course.
The Safeguarding Children e-Academy has developed an online refresher course in collaboration with experts from 6 Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs), which covers all the changes in Safeguarding over the last three years.
On completion of this course learners will be able to:
- Identify the changes to practice over the past three years
- Identify different levels of harm and the appropriate safeguarding processes to be followed
- Understand safeguarding children issues from a national perspective
- Welcome and Learning Objectives
- Why is Change Necessary?
- Recent Legislation
- Integrated Working
- Further Information and Summary
