This Introduction to child protection training is aimed at the wider workforce, who as part of their job, are likely to come into contact with children, young people and their families. It can also be used as a first step to further training in child protection.

This session is designed to help staff and volunteers identify child protection concerns and know how to respond to fulfil their shared responsibilities of protecting children and safeguarding their wellbeing.

By the end of this training participants will:

  • Understand what is meant by it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect children and know about the Getting It Right for Every Child approach.
  • Be able to identify possible risks and signs of child abuse and neglect
  • Know what to do if you are worried about a child or young person
  • Know when to seek appropriate support/supervision and where to look for this.
