About the course

This masterclass provides guidance and information about the need to understand and implement policies and procedures in order to create a safer environment for children and the workforce and maintain an ongoing culture of vigilance. Participants are encouraged to analyse the part they play in safeguarding children and address any barriers they may have in fulfilling their safeguarding obligations. An allegation can be made at any time against a member of staff.

It is therefore important that you are prepared and ready to manage what will be a very sensitive situation, properly. Attending this workshop will help you build the required safeguarding confidence and competence. The course also aims to give useful information about the effective management of complaints, concerns and allegations against someone in a position of trust and serious incidents in line with regulatory requirements. Delegates will receive flexible learning opportunities to help acquire knowledge and skills, drawing upon lessons from serious case reviews, research and real life case studies.
