Safeguarding children for Designated Safeguarding Leads and Deputies
Strong, effective leadership in ‘children centred services’ is the key driver in improving the quality of safeguarding practices. In this workshop, learners will be encouraged to explore their own management and leadership style and analyse the part they play in creating a safeguarding culture that prioritises children’s wellbeing.
Safe recruitment and selection processes are essential if settings, organisations and institutions are to attract the best staff and deter and reject those who may pose a risk to children or who are unsuitable to work with them. This course promotes safer recruitment practice and challenges poor and unsafe processes. Participants will have opportunities to examine how to continually assess the ‘suitability’ of their workforce, explore the part ‘ supervision’ plays in creating safer environments and learn how to implement safeguarding audits to evidence performance and identify gaps.
* Have developed a structure for effective supervision and tools for managing the work, including the use of supervision agreements
* Examines the need for on-going awareness and vigilance and how organisations can develop and maintain an environment that deters and prevents abuse and challenges inappropriate behaviour
* Identify the key features of staff recruitment that help deter or prevent the appointment of unsuitable people
