Our designated safeguarding officer in Northern Ireland course is for those who have a responsibility to coordinate the response to safeguarding concerns within their organisation, and support others in doing so.
You must have previously attended an introductory level course in child protection, and have a role in liaising with other agencies involved in child protection, especially children’s social care.
People who have taken this course include:
- child care groups
- professionals and volunteers from commercial and community organisations
This course doesn’t provide full training for people who work in a statutory agency.
