New Expanded NSPCC Child Protection Awareness Programme
Friday, September 21st, 2012
EduCare and the NSPCC have just launched a new fully updated and expanded version of their very popular ‘Child Protection Awareness’ programme.
This 5-module programme benefits from a new first module on child development to better enable participants to recognise what may be out of the norm. The module explains the 7 developmental needs of all children and the path along which they should progress if they are to reach their maximum potential and wellbeing. It also covers the key stages of child development and what can influence it. Parent/carer attachment and why it so critical to children’s development is also discussed and what can happen when a child suffers disrupted or negative attachment experiences. Finally the module looks at getting the balance right between resilience and vulnerability and giving children a protective environment.
The balance of the programme goes on to explain what child abuse is, including the signs and indicators, what to do if you have concerns and finally, there is a module dedicated to guidance on good practice.
Successful participants will receive an NSPCC EduCare certificate to evidence their achievement and the programme is independently certified for CPD. It is available in both paper-based and online learning formats at a cost of £29.50 + VAT (bulk discounts are available). For further information please click here.
