Child Protection Awareness Training in Cardiff

Cardiff

19 Feb 2018

1:00pm - 4:00pm

If you work with children or vulnerable adults, then you need to be aware of your responsibilities as a teacher in order to safeguard your pupils. It is also important to ensure that your own working practices don’t put you in a position where your actions could be misconstrued, potentially leading to allegations against you.

You might work on a one to one basis or with small groups. You may give lessons in your home, at the students homes, or at school; so it is vitally important that you know how to protect your students and keep them safe from harm.

This workshop aims to give anyone working with children or vulnerable adults the tools to feel confident regarding their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting their welfare. It will also provide valuable opportunities to discuss good teaching practices with fellow teachers, and gain insight into the types of child protection issues that could arise.

This workshop aims to help you:
- Understand child protection issues
- Identify abuse
- Recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse
- Know what to do and where to get help if you suspect child abuse
- Understand the relevant legislation and guidance
- Protect yourself from allegations
- Enhance your awareness of and encourage good practice

The workshop will last two hours, with time to network as well as discuss child protection and other teaching or music industry issues. Light refreshments will be provided.
