Safeguarding Group C - Children and Young People

Provided by Nicole James, New Pathways

Face to Face training (4 half days)

Target Audience: Registered or regulated practitioners with an assessing, planning, intervening and evaluating role. They will have a clear protection planning role (core group, case conference, strategy meeting attendees) and have a statutory function.


This 2-day advanced level course aims to ensure participants are able to make decisions about keeping children/adults safe and know when they need to put protection processes in place.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • I understand that giving people voice and control is an essential part of decision making - child-centred practice

  • I have the ability to make clear and proportionate decisions.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • apply relevant legislation, policies and codes of conduct to your day-to-day practice and advise others of these
  • safeguard and protect children and young people based on evidence available at the time and escalate concerns to the next level
  • reflect on factors, situations and actions that may contribute to abuse, harm or neglect and provide rationale to challenge these
  • know how, when and to whom to report different types of abuse, neglect and harm
  • follow the Wales Safeguarding Procedures and the regional decision making process and advise other colleagues of these when required
