Working Together Training Course (DSL Level 2)

Everyone shares responsibility for Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. This course is for people wishing to gain advanced knowledge of Child Protection or those who wish to work towards becoming a Designated Safeguarding Lead who have already completed Basic Safeguarding training.

Exploring the concepts of “child vulnerability”, “child protection” and “significant harm” you will learn about the issues around safeguarding children, and the individual and organisational responsibilities of protecting children from abuse. Building on these concepts we will explore the four main categories of abuse, child sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation and honour based violence.

You will briefly explore the legislation which underpins child protection and the course will cover how to handle a disclosure, including recording and reporting.

By the end of the session individuals will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to recognise the signs of child vulnerability and abuse and will be prepared to go on to our Designated Safeguarding Lead Training Course (DSL Level 3)
