QA Level 2 Award in Safeguarding and Protecting Children, Young People and Adults at Risk (RQF)

In other words training should pertain to children and adults, even if you work predominately with just one group.
As registered nurses we are knowledgeable and skilled in operational roles regarding the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We will share with you the importance of professional and public duty in respect to vigilance in safeguarding those around us, especially those who may be vulnerable or risk of being harmed.
Our half day classroom workshop training will help you to understand how safeguarding principles work, assist you to feel comfortable and knowledgeable to protect and empower those in your care and recognise your key role to ensure that children and identified adults at risk are kept safe from abuse as no form of abuse is acceptable.
