The protection of human rights is the main purpose of safeguarding and consequently training identifies when abuse is happening. Chief among these rights is the right to equality, regardless of sex, race or other characteristic. Where there is a violation of human rights, it is crucial that measures are in place to restore them in. This creates a framework where everyone has the right to maintain their values and beliefs while living their lives unimpeded.
Safeguarding aims to minimise and manage the risk of exposure to abuse and neglect. There are specific safeguarding circumstances to consider for children due to power imbalances and their lack of experience. The NSPCC gives a clear overview of these specific safeguarding issues at Safeguarding Children and Child Protection
Those with a duty of care for children must undertake a safeguarding course. This Safeguarding Level 1 course aims to equip those looking after children with the knowledge to recognise abuse. Although most children are brought up in loving, nurturing environments and grow up to lead happy lives, many do not. During this course you will hear many
facts, figures and details relating to risk factors faced by children in danger of abuse. We discuss types of abuse and key safeguarding legislation designed to protect children. The aim of this training course is to enable you understand safeguarding principles so you can respond effectively. 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.

Online assessment for safeguarding children training is carried out by a series of multiple choice questions. Candidates must answer 70% of the questions correctly to pass each module. We advise you to complete each module and answer the question before moving on to the next module. This provides a better learning experience because you will need to have knowledge from earlier modules to understand some of the material in the later modules. For those who complete the course successfully, a PDF certificate of the award is sent directly to your inbox. Hard copies of the award are available on request. The course takes 75 minutes of training to complete. This is course content only and does not cover the time it takes to answer questions.
