Before we start this course, we will first look at what's covered during the training. The course is divided into categories, and within each category, you will find several videos. You can pause and watch again any of the videos in the course. We update our courses regularly, and you will be able to see any replacements and also any new videos as they are released. This may be an online course, but if you have any questions during the course, you can contact us by phone, email, or use our online chat facility on any of our websites.

You will work through the course videos in order. And now I will give you an overview of what is contained in the course. In the first section, we will look at the Quality Care Commission, child protection responsibilities and children's rights. We will also be talking about the acts and regulations regarding child protection, such as the Human Rights Act and the Protection from Harassment Act. Another category within the course is child abuse. We cover indicators of abuse, psychological abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and the act of omission. In the final categories, we also talk about prevention and the awareness of safeguarding of children. This covers what children want from professionals, protecting yourself against allegations, key supporting information and reporting abuse.
