It is a statutory requirement for anyone who works with children to update their knowledge of legislation and guidance and maintain the ability to act on concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people.

The government guidance suggests that refresher training should take place every three years. Whilst necessary, this can be costly for organisations and frustrating for staff, who may have heavy case loads and find it difficult to get away from work to attend a refresher course.

This online Safeguarding Children Refresher course has been developed in collaboration with experts from six Safeguarding Children Boards, which covers all the changes in Safeguarding Children over the last three years.

What will I study?

The following units will be covered:

  • Identify the changes to practice over the past three years
  • Identify different levels of harm and the appropriate safeguarding processes to be followed
  • Receive safeguarding children information from both a local and national context
  • Recent legislation and guidance
  • Integrated working
  • Further information and summary
