Child Protection Certification
In the UK alone, one in five children have endured severe mistreatment, including various forms of child abuse. The key to preventing future incidents, as well as helping the victims of abuse, is understanding more about it. This knowledge is crucial to have, if there are any children in your life, regardless of your profession.

Those engaged in occupations that deal directly with children have a special obligation to look out for the children in their lives, while the rest of us have a moral obligation to protect the children whom we know.

This course goes into detail regarding child protection. We begin by giving you an introduction to child protection, including the rights that children have, as laid down by UK law and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We also talk about the various pieces of legislation and government guidance in place that discusses child protection, the safeguarding of children and the roles and responsibilities that agencies play in this process.

Next, we review the types of child abuse that may be encountered, along with the possible indicators of each type of abuse.

Finally, we review the various ways in which parents and other caregivers can work, to actively protect children from harm.
You Will Learn:

The importance of child protection across every occupation
What to do, if you suspect that a child whom you know is being abused or harmed or is in need of protection
The specific pieces of legislation and government guidance that you can turn to, for more information, in the case of specific incidents
Additional information on the types of discrimination that children in the UK frequently face
The specific steps that parents and caregivers can take, to keep children safe, both online and in public
