New Safeguarding e-learning now available for non-clinical staff

A new edition of Level 1 Safeguarding Children and Young People e-learning has been produced especially for non-clinical staff. The new edition achieves the same learning outcome, but uses less graphic imagery more appropriate for non-clinical staff.

Safeguarding Children and Young People is an e-learning resource designed to help protect children and young people from harm. It helps healthcare providers ensure their teams are up to date with the issues surrounding child protection.

The e-learning meets the statutory training requirements of Section 11 of the Children Act and is delivered by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in partnership with e-Learning for Healthcare.

It is available in 20-30 minute bite-sized sessions that can be accessed either from work or at home. The e-learning covers two levels:

Level 1 – Introduction to Safeguarding Children and Young People

  • A single session that covers the knowledge and competencies required for Level 1 Safeguarding. This includes recognition of the four types of child abuse and the appropriate actions healthcare staff need to take if they are concerned a child is being abused or neglected.
    Level 1 (version 2) for non-clinical staff is now available.

Level 2 – Recognition, Response and Reporting

  • Three sessions that cover the knowledge and competencies required for Level 2 Safeguarding. This includes recognising child abuse, being able to document cause for concern, knowing who to inform and understanding the next steps in the child and young person protection process.
