Child Protection Officer Training - 12 March 2020

About this Event

This course is for individuals that have responsibility for child protection arrangements within their youth group. The course is particularly aimed at those in small voluntary sector organisations. You may be in the role as Designated Child Protection Officer or are going into this role.

Below is the criteria to attend;

  1. Participants must have attended Child Protection Awareness training.
  2. Participants must bring a copy of their organisation's Child Protection Policy and Procedure.
  3. This training is for adult workers/ volunteers/ leaders aged 16+.

This training will enable you to become familiar with the roles and responsibilities of the child protection officer so you can develop competence and confidence in carrying out this role. You will explore key themes around policy, referral procedures, support to staff, and best practice in safeguarding children and young people. Key learning: • Understanding the responsibilities attached to your lead role • Gaining confidence in revising policies and procedures and embedding them across your agency • Understanding the importance of management oversight of staff working with children and young people • Recognising the role of your setting in providing early help to vulnerable children in order to minimise and manage risk • Managing concerns and the process for referring children who may be in need of protection or intervention from other services.

Refreshments will be provided on the day, however, please bring your own lunch. Failing that, there are a few shops local to the office where you can walk to.
