About This Course

Our Safeguarding Children Online Course has been created because, first and foremost, each and every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, sex or location. When these rights are abused in some way, it’s wrong. Therefore, it is vital that guidelines, policies, and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception, to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.

Regardless of their age, sex, religion, ethnicity, or background, every child has the right to a healthy, happy life. Child safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals, particularly children.


Although most children are brought up in loving, nurturing environments and grow up to lead happy lives, the subject has to be discussed to better protect those children who need it most.

During this Online Safeguarding Children course you will hear many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to children, the types of abuse suffered, how to recognise the signs of abuse and key safeguarding legislations put in place to minimise the abuse of children.

Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse, and know the steps you should take if you suspect it you will be better able to protect the children in your care.
