Description

Course Overview

This course is for all staff and students who might come into contact with children or vulnerable adults as part of their work / placement.

This includes teaching staff, students engaged in research or off campus activities that bring them into contact with children or vulnerable adults, administrative and support staff, security staff, employees in the student union, accommodation officers, health centre employees, etc.

Many employees do not have regular contact with children or vulnerable adults, but benefit from a basic understanding of the principles of safeguarding for both of these groups. This four module course looks at these key principles in a short, engaging e-learning course.

On completion, you will be able to recognise the signs of child and adult abuse and understand your role in reporting and preventing abuse of children and adults. By taking this course, you might just be able to spot abuse and prevent a child or adult from suffering.
