Course Description

The Understanding Safeguarding Children - QLS Level 3 Course provides the basic knowledge students will need of the legislative framework and the assessment and care proceeding steps.

Safeguarding children is becoming an increasingly widely talked about issue and something that people working in a wide range of disciplines need to be aware of. The need to take measures to safeguard a child can result from many factors and is not a matter that can be taken lightly.

Safeguarding Children provides an outline of the relevant legislation relating to children, the reasons why a child may become known to social services or other agencies, and the steps that may be taken to ensure the child’s welfare and wellbeing needs are met. Successful completion of the course provides students wishing to become social workers, teachers, doctors, nurses, childminders and any others who come into contact with children and their families, the underpinning knowledge they need to ensure the child’s welfare is paramount.
