Safeguarding for Training Providers Course Content

This course is a basic introduction to safeguarding. It will help you to recognise potential abuse and safeguarding concerns and will supply you with the knowledge to report concerns and take appropriate action.

There are also variants for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. You can choose the most appropriate option at the start of the course.

On completion of this course, the learner will:

  • Have a general awareness of the range of legislation and guidance surrounding safeguarding
  • Be able to define the different types of abuse
  • Be able to demonstrate an awareness of the various indicators of abuse, neglect and exploitation
  • Be aware of the effects of personal values and attitudes towards abuse
  • Understand your responsibility to report concerns
  • Be aware of the importance of maintaining a person-centred approach
  • Be able to demonstrate an awareness of the actions to take in the event of suspected abuse

The purpose of this first module is to help you assess your current safeguarding knowledge. You will look at a series of scenarios that will start you thinking about some of the ways in which you could encounter potential abuse or safeguarding concerns and what actions you might take in response.

This module will look at what child/adult protection and safeguarding actually are in practical terms. On completion of the module, you will have a much better understanding of keywords and phrases and how these relate to safeguarding for both children and adults.

Safeguarding and protecting people must operate within a framework of guidance and legal procedure. This module offers an overview of this framework and how it is applied. Of course, you will not be expected to quote detailed laws directly, but you will gather a general understanding of what they are. This module will also look at the organisations that may be part of safeguarding, their responsibilities, and the guidelines for protection.

Where appropriate, the course is designed to meet the needs of:

  • The Rights of Children and Young Persons Measure (Wales)
  • Working Together to Safeguard Children (England)
  • Getting It Right for Every Child (Scotland)
  • Understanding the Needs of Children (Northern Ireland)

By the end of the module, you will have a much clearer understanding of safeguarding guidance, the associated agencies and the legalities of protection. You will also see how the agencies work together to tackle the problem of abuse.

To effectively detect, reduce and hopefully prevent abuse, we need to strictly define what it is and how it manifests itself. Understanding the categories of abuse facilitates our ability to recognise the tell-tale signs that it is taking place.

At the end of this module, you will have a better understanding of what we mean by abuse and neglect, what the specific areas of abuse are, and how to spot them.

People, regardless of age, often find it very difficult to talk about the abuse they're experiencing. The anxiety they feel may display itself in different ways, such as them having challenging or changed behaviours, and we need to recognise these signs of abuse. Abusers are often adept at covering their tracks and may appear to be very caring people, so recognising the signs of abuse can often be the first alert to a situation.

At the end of this module, you will be more familiar with the definitions of abuse and the signs and indicators of the different types of abuse and safeguarding concerns.

The increased use of technology brings many benefits and, sadly, a few dangers. This module looks at the role of safeguarding when it comes to online safety. The content will give you an overview of the potential for risk when learners are online, in relation to, amongst other areas, grooming, sexting and cyberbullying. The module will remind you of the legal position should you become aware of an incident and will outline ways of empowering learners to be safe and report issues when online.

By the end of the module, you will have extended your knowledge of the risks associated with technology, the different aspects of online safeguarding in education, specific risks learners may be exposed to, and effective online safety practice.

Safeguarding includes working to prevent learners from being drawn into extremism. Staff are expected to challenge extremist ideas and recognise when learners are at risk, and Ofsted will expect to see leaders and governors taking steps to protect learners from radicalisation and extremist views.

This module places the Prevent strategy in context and considers the ways in which radicalisation can affect a person and the groups that may attempt to induct an individual into their ideology.

By the end of the module, you will have a greater understanding of the signs of radicalisation and what to do should you feel a learner is in danger of being drawn into terrorism.

Sadly, many cases of abuse are disclosed several times before any action is taken. Taking a person-centred approach places the possible victim at the heart of your safeguarding and helps reduce the time taken to get help where it is needed.

By the end of this module, you will have a better understanding of what it means to be person-centred.

This part of the course builds on the work we did in module three, where we looked at effective consultation between agencies and the increased understanding of the signs of, and the different types of abuse we discussed in modules four and five. People can disclose in a number of ways, so, while you want to maintain confidentiality where appropriate, you also need to know when to report and to whom. It is vital that you respond quickly and appropriately when presented with a disclosure of abuse or safeguarding concern, and this module will cover the right process to follow and what to do (and what not to do) to achieve the desired outcome.

By the end of this module, you will have a better understanding of the correct procedures to follow in response to a potential safeguarding situation. A step-by-step guide is included, which will help you to refer any concerns you may have.

Using a range of scenarios and questions you will now take all that you have learned and apply it to an assessment of your knowledge. The final module will allow you to show how much you have absorbed and why it is so important to have safeguarding training.

Once you have passed your assessment, you will be able to download your certificate. Your pass rate will be 70% but don’t worry if you do not pass the first time, as you can take the test multiple times.
