Webinar - Safeguarding & Child Protection for Early Years

Time & Location

Apr 15, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Child Protection for Early Years

About the Event

Saturday AM Training Session from 9.30am-12.30pm

All children and young people are vulnerable to risks of abuse and neglect. However, sadly, statistics show that our early years are our most vulnerable. Our homicide stats continue to show how vulnerable our early years can be, with more than two-thirds of these fallen angels being aged 2 or under.

We also know the Early Years sector is one of the most regulated sectors, yet continues to struggle in accessing tailored safeguarding training, and training that doesn’t clash with services to families. So we are fixing this by ensuring our early years professionals have access to some weekend training, that is completely tailored to early years.

In this course, you will be guided through safeguarding and child protection for our children, staff and your organisation. The key skills and knowledge you will gain include:

  • Being able to explain the difference between safeguarding and child protection.
  • Identifying the impact adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and abuse can have on early childhood immediate and long-term development, health, and well-being.
  • A familiarity with the different types of harm, categories of abuse and possible indicators and how all of these can relate to our early years.
  • An understanding of the different types of disclosures and how to respond to a disclosure safely.
  • Familiarity with best practice when reporting, referring and recording safeguarding and child protection concerns.
  • An understanding of allegations against staff and the importance of maintaining a position of trust and safe practice when working with children.
  • An appreciation of the importance for organisations to demonstrate a safeguarding culture, for everybody’s well-being, children, staff and the organisation.
