Level 3 Award in Principles of Safeguarding and Protecting Children, Young People or Vulnerable Adults

Safeguarding is about how we can protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from both abuse or neglect by the actions, or lack of actions, of another person. In order to safeguard and protect persons from either abuse or neglect we will need to learn how to identify vulnerable individuals and take necessary steps to stop abuse and neglect. Everyone of us has the right to be safe and live without the fear of abuse, neglect or exploitation and this course aims to teach you how to recognise the signs of abuse and neglect and what actions you can take to stop this from happening and occurring again in the future. Abuse, neglect and exploitation can occur anywhere and by anyone, quite often it being a person of trust.
This course is designed for anyone, no matter the field that they are involved in, to give them the tools and knowledge to make a important difference to a vulnerable person’s life. It will also let the practitioner reporting the abuse know how they can safeguard themselves in every day work, whilst seeking help and reporting the incident.
