About the course

The Children Act 2004, through the Stay Safe Outcome of the Every Child Matters Change for Children Programme, places a duty on organisations and individuals to safeguard and promote the well being of children.

In recent years, concern has been raised about the potential vulnerability of adults working with children and Adults. It has been acknowledged that there is a need for clearer advice about what constitutes illegal behaviour, what might be considered as misconduct and which behaviours might also suggest an individual is unsuitable to work with children and Adults.

This course explores the Government's latest guidance included in a draft of documents about Ensuring God Behaviour in Schools (2011) (Managing Allegations Against Staff, Use of Reasonable Force, Screening, Searching and Confiscation etc.) underpinning the Education Act 2011 and referring to the guidance document entitled 'Safer Working Practice for Adults Working with Children & Young People in Education Settings' (2009).

There are approximately 3000 allegations made against Education staff each year, and a similar number against other members of the children's workforce and foster carers.

This course provides an opportunity for all staff to consider appropriate professional behaviour and relationships, which will keep children safe from abuse and staff safe from unwarranted allegations.

Child Protection Training UK offers a one day course which is intended to supply all Adults who work with children and Adults guidance and building on knowledge about how allegations arise, and to support these adults by providing clear guidance about appropriate behaviours which if followed, can minimise the risk of allegations being made against them.
