Safeguarding Children

Course Overview

Everyone has a safeguarding responsibility with regards to children. We all have a duty in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those individuals with whom we come into contact with either during our work, family life or just being a member of the public.

This may be raising a concern, or passing on information or, if you are in a professional role, taking on more responsibilities to ensure that the processes for implementing company policy  are being dealt with correctly.

If you are at all concerned and need support or information we at Viking Training can provide you with the necessary training to comply with these processes and ensure that the right course of action is taken.
