Safeguarding children is:
- protecting children from abuse and maltreatment.
- preventing harm to their health
- ensuring they grow up with the provision of safe and effective care.
- giving children equal opportunities in life.
Safeguarding children training is a legal requirement for anyone who works with or around children and young adults (under the age of 18). That includes a variety of sectors, settings, and organisations. For example, all staff who work in a school or education environment, healthcare staff, and childminders.
It ensures staff members can spot potential signs, be able to report the concern appropriately and understand safeguarding legislation, such as Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018).

It isn't down to just one person who can safeguard a child. Everyone who works or volunteers with children or young people has a responsibility for keeping them safe. It is essential to have knowledge on how to report safeguarding concerns, neglect, trafficking, or exploitation so they can be addressed quickly and appropriately.
However, if an occasion arises where you do need to report a safeguarding concern, it's best to report it to your designated safeguarding lead.
Safeguarding Children training can help you safeguard a child in many ways. For one, it teaches you the signs and types of abuse. This is incredibly important as knowing these can help you notice when a child or young person is at risk.
A Safeguarding Children training course will also provide you with what to do in an event of a safeguarding emergency in the workplace, so you can help safeguard a child in need.
