For professionals who work with both children and adults at risk the ChildProtectionCompany.com provides online training which combines both adult and child safeguarding knowledge.
The combined adult/child training courses have been specifically designed to bring together, what have traditionally been, two separate courses into one; saving the learner both time and money. The safeguarding principles that are shared across both child and adult protection are reinforced without the need to duplicate. The knowledge which is specific to each area, i.e. child and adult protection, is also fully covered and includes: legislation, guidance, types of abuse, reporting, confidentiality and consent.
Two levels of course are available:
Introduction to adult/child protection -for anyone who comes into contact with children and adults at risk. It covers child and adult safeguarding legislation and guidance, the different types of abuse, how to recognise abuse and neglect, and reporting concerns.
Further adult/child protection – specifically developed to enhance the learning of designated professional for safegurading and their deputy within an organisation, and for anyone wishing to cover the topic in more depth. It covers child and adult safeguarding policies and procedures, identifying concerns, handling allegations and complaints and making referrals
