As one of the most important issues affecting today's society, this Level 3 programme is specifically designed to offer healthcare professionals and others who work with children or adults with parental responsibilities comprehensive information about this key topic.
As we work through the various Modules that make up this Level 3 programme, the importance of collaborative working becomes increasingly apparent and as a result, much of the focus is not only upon the key responsibilities and expectations of the professionals themselves, but also how the various elements “fit together” within wider safeguarding and child protection contexts.
The course structure is based on the following cornerstone topics, with the chapters and sections of each covering the detail required to suitably cover the topic at this level:
- Underpinning legislation
- Assessment frameworks, systems and resources
- Multi-agency involvement
- Recognising and responding to the signs of abuse
- Children in specific circumstances - disability, challenging domestic environments, pregnancy and parenthood
- Referral & Assessment
- Child Protection Enquiries
- Implementing a child protection plan
Externally accredited through the CPD Standards Office, this comprehensive course uses a variety of media to reiterate key information and knowledge points. The natural breaks suggested further help to ensure individuals know when a good opportunity emerges to “take a break” and by helping individuals to tackle this complex topic in a flexible way, it is hoped that individuals will not only be better able to assimilate the information, but that also, they can more easily embed the key elements into routine practice, thereby supporting the effective implementation and delivery of Safeguarding and Child Protection systems.
