Esther Green: Safeguarding and Prevent
13 December 2019, 9.30 – 4.30pm (ref: SGD19)
Safeguarding is a legal and ethical requirement when working with children. The morning session will focus on general safeguarding process and policies, including recognising how to meet personal and organisational legal responsibilities for safeguarding children; how to describe and recognise the four types of abuse and neglect; how to respond effectively when a child wants to disclose, and how to record and refer child protection concerns. The afternoon workshop will introduce the Prevent anti-terrorism intervention, and consider how we can support and protect those people that might be susceptible to radicalisation.We will also look at roles and responsibilities in respect of keeping children and young people safe from sexual exploitation as well as understanding Female Genital Mutilation, the risks, and why it is a crime.
