An introductory course for anyone who works with children who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and additional needs.
Do you need to better identify safeguarding concerns when working with children and young people? It’s not always easy to spot the signs of abuse. In some cases, adults may mistake the indicators of abuse as signs of a child or young person’s disability.
As the UK’s experts on safeguarding, this elearning course will help you to identify safeguarding concerns, communicate effectively with children and young people to help keep them safe and create a safe culture in your school or college.
