About the Course

Course Duration: 1 hour 17 minutes (approx.)

Children may be vulnerable to neglect and abuse from their family members and other individuals they may come across in their everyday lives. The statutory guidance, Working Together to Safeguard Children, states that the welfare of children is paramount, and it is therefore crucial that school staff are aware that mental health issues can, in some cases, be a sign that a child has suffered or is at risk of suffering neglect or abuse.

Developed by Lorna Ponambalum, an independent safeguarding and inclusion consultant, this Essential CPD course provides you with the knowledge and skills to be able to identify, respond, reduce and prevent instances of child neglect and abuse.

Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
