One in five kids in the UK alone have experienced serious maltreatment, including several types of child abuse. Understanding abuse better is essential to both stopping current incidences and supporting the victims. No matter what your profession, if you have children in your life, you must have this knowledge.

While the rest of us have a moral obligation to protect the children we know, those working in occupations that directly interact with children have a special responsibility to watch out for the kids in their lives.

This course covers kid protection in great depth. We start by presenting a general overview of child protection, including an explanation of the rights that kids enjoy under UK law and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We also explore the many laws and government regulations that are in place and that address child protection, child safety, and the roles and duties that agencies play in this process.

The sorts of child abuse that could occur are then discussed, along with potential warning signs for each type of abuse.

Lastly, we go over the several approaches that parents and other carers may use to actively safeguard kids from danger.

  • The significance of child protection in all professions
  • What to do if you believe a kid, you know is being mistreated, hurt, or needs to be protected
  • The relevant laws and government regulations you can consult for further information regarding certain situations
  • More details on the many forms of prejudice that kids in the UK commonly experience
  • What parents and other adults can do specifically to keep kids safe both online and in public

  • Knowing when to call emergency services in relation to a kid, as well as which service is most suitable
  • Gaining self-assurance in your job as a carer or someone who actively participates in a child's life
  • Being able to identify probable abuse instances earlier so that you may look for aid for the child right away
  • Gaining knowledge of less well-known forms of abuse, such as emotional abuse and discriminatory maltreatment
  • Feeling more confident as a parent about the choices you've made about the independence of your child, both online and offline
