How often should child protection training be done?

How often Child Protection training should be completed depends on the person’s role and the sector (education, early years and childcare and social work).

Child Protection training should be part of your introduction process for all new staff and volunteers, no matter their role. It is then recommended to be refreshed every 2 years.

What does child protection involve? Child Protection involves the safeguarding of children or young people from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect. It promotes the health and welfare of children to help them grow up in a safe and supportive environment. This could be spotting the signs and symptoms of abuse and reporting it when you have a suspicion or know that it is happening.
What is the legislation for child protection? The key legislation for child protection that you should be aware of is:
  • The Children Act 1989 (as amended)
  • The Children and Social Work Act 2017
  • Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019
  • The Children and Young People Act 2014
  • Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018
These all outline what is expected when it comes to child protection.
What is the role of a child protection officer?

The role of a child protection officer is to promote children’s wellbeing and protect them from harm or abuse. Some of the roles and duties could include:

  • Identifying children at risk
  • Investigating reported concerns and allegations
  • Advise on child protection issues
  • Write care plans and arrange support
  • And more
It’s important that child protection officers take our Child Protection course, so they can identify a child or young person at risk and know what to do when it comes to reporting. Get in touch today to book or find out more information.
What is a child protection policy in schools? A child protection policy in schools is a policy that includes procedures to be followed if a teacher or other member of staff is accused of harming a child. All schools should have one and they should be under constant review.
