Course aims

The overall aim of this online Safeguarding Adults and Children training courses is to improve awareness and knowledge relating to the safeguarding of vulnerable adults at risk, particularly in health care and social care settings. These online Safeguarding Adults and Children training courses meet the requirements of the Care Act 2014 and the CQC Common Induction Standards.

Safeguarding children and young people from harm and providing an environment in which children can flourish is a critical societal value. Children and young people have a right to be “protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them” (United Nations 1989). Organisations are required to co-operate with other agencies to protect individual children and young people from harm.

The importance of this has been powerfully highlighted as part of recent inquiries exploring child and young people safeguarding issues (Children’s Commissioner 2012).

To raise public awareness so that professionals, other staff and communities as a whole play their part in preventing, identifying and responding to abuse and neglect.
