Organisations now recognise the importance of having a child protection lead, also known as child protection officer or designated person for child protection.

This course will teach you:

  • A greater understanding of the responsibilities attached to your lead role.​
  • Gain confidence in policies and procedures and embedding them across your organisation.​
  • Recognise the role of your setting in providing early help to vulnerable children in order to minimise and manage risk.​
  • Managing concerns regarding a child in need of protection or regarding an employee or volunteer of the organisation.​
  • ‘Professional dangerousness’
  • Difficult conversations
  • Reporting thresholds and ‘grey’ areas
