Key Learning Points:
- The signs, symptoms and behaviours associated with child abuse
- What child abuse and neglect are
- The responsibility to safeguard children
- When and how to report concerns
- The consequences when concerns are not acted on appropriately
Any child can be a victim of abuse or neglect. Working to safeguard them is everyone's responsibility and knowing the signs of abuse is vital.
Our Awareness of Safeguarding Children course explores what child abuse is, how to recognise the signs of abuse, and the procedures to follow to report suspected child abuse. It is particularly useful for people whose roles, hobbies or volunteering activities bring them into contact with children, but it is important for all workers to be aware of this topic.
This course is suitable as an introduction to the topic of safeguarding children. For a more in-depth treatment of the subject, see our Introduction to Safeguarding Children course (which includes our Awareness course as its first module).

The Importance of Safeguarding Training
Every man, woman, and child has the basic human right to live a life without abuse. Sadly, this is a right that millions of people all over the world are forced to live without.
Safeguarding is the act of protecting a person's right to live in safety – free from abuse, harm, and neglect. Safeguarding practices apply to both vulnerable adults and children.
Training in safeguarding protects both the adults at risk and the employee who notices the signs, as they will be equipped to know what to do in those circumstances.
