Training Designed For
Our Child Protection Awareness Course was designed to meet the learning, language, and technical needs of support staff and volunteers working with children.
The course was designed by educators and Child Protection experts with decades of experience working in schools, degrees in instructional design, and expertise in EdTech and eLearning.
Our unique instructional design was written to meet the learning needs of the diverse adult learners that work with children in organizations such as schools. We developed a learner profile that takes into account their varied educational experiences and literacy levels, their diverse cultural backgrounds, and their range of knowledge in Child Protection, eLearning, and professional development.
Our course delivers Child Protection content that uses:
- A concept focused approach
- A multimodal approach that includes visual, auditory, and textual content
- An interface accessible to all literacy levels
- A quizzing system that focuses on engagement, not assessment
Every learner receives the same learning experience regardless of language.
Our Child Protection Awareness Course was developed in partnership with Chris Gould of 112 Safeguarding. It was built upon the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The course aligns to international Child Protection training standards and legal frameworks.
Our course covers:
Part 1 – What is Child Protection and Why is it Important?
Part 2 – Types of Abuse
Part 3 – Child Protection Concerns
Part 4 – Appropriate Adult Behavior
Part 5 – Reporting Child Protection Concerns
* Each section includes a quiz
To complete the introduction, 5 parts of the course, and the course review takes 60-90 minutes.
Our course has been certified by The CPD Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles.
Our platform allows organizations to include customized reporting information that is presented in the course in line with the rest of the content.
For example, if a school has a Designated Safeguarding Lead that should be contacted for Child Protection reports, the school can add that person’s name, job title, and contact information to the course.
This custom reporting information is presented in the course and on the Certificate of Completion. This allows learners to read the organization’s reporting information and to keep a written reference for future use.
This customized content is presented live. If an organization updates this information, it will be updated on all subsequent sessions and certificates, even those that are reprinted.
Our Certificates of Completion are valuable learning artifacts for both learners and organizations.
- The Certificate is valid for 2 years
- It contains important information from the course and the school’s custom reporting information
- It is presented in the language used in the course
- It is accessible at any time using the Learner Code from the course
- It can be printed, downloaded, or emailed
The language of the certificate can be changed. For example, if a school has learners that complete the course in multiple languages, they can download copies in English for internal records or in another language to meet local legal requirements.
All certificates can be authenticated through our verification system.
A central focus of ChildSafeguarding.com is to make Child Protection training accessible to learners in multiple languages.
We present our Child Protection Awareness Course for support staff and volunteers in these languages:
- At the point of entry to the course
- Throughout the course, in both audio and subtitles
- On all buttons, labels, webpages, and emails
- On the Certificate of Completion
Our aim is that learners taking the course have their entire experience presented in their language of choice, without the need for accommodation of English.
Our translations are done by educators because educators not only understand the language and the Child Protection content, but they also understand the context of working with children.
