Safeguarding Children: A Shared Responsibility Level 2 (Richmond)

Course Title:
Safeguarding Children: A Shared Responsibility Level 2 (Richmond)
Course Code:

No matter where you work you are likely to encounter children during the course of your normal working activities. You are in a unique position to be able to observe signs of abuse or neglect, or changes in behaviour which may indicate a child may be being abused or neglected. All those working with children and young people should make sure that they are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect, that they question the behaviours, not taking everything they are told at face value.

Please note that if you are booking from Education Services or from outside the Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston there will be a booking fee of £80
