Course description

The Level 2 Certificate in Safeguarding Children and Young People is an excellent course for students who work with children and young people.

A child for the purpose of this course being defined as a young person between the stages of infancy and youth. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) defines a child as an individual aged 0 to 18 years old, however, within British Criminal law, a child is considered any person up to the age of 14, although they can be convicted of an offence from the age of 10. A young person may be defined as someone in the first or an early stage of life, growth or development or more specifically an individual between the ages of 14-19. It is important to note that a person’s development depends on a number of genetic and environmental factors and where these are affected in a negative way, so will the young person’s development.
 
Whilst Safeguarding has not been given a specific definition in law, it may be considered in its simplest form as ‘keeping children safe from harm, such as illness, abuse or injury.’ Following the implementation of the Government Every Child Matters agenda, the term ‘Child Protection’ has been replaced by ‘Safeguarding’ and is the responsibility of all individuals who work with children and young people. All professionals i.e. professional careers, parenting workers and care assistants, now have a duty of care to the children and young people they work with and are expected to protect a child’s emotional, physical and sexual well-being as well as to ensuring that their needs are not neglected.

A child or young person may be harmed in many different ways, not always obvious to others and as such we are often not fully aware as to what is happening in a young person’s life i.e. if they are safe or being harmed either directly or indirectly.
 
Indeed, children and young people can be harmed by a number of different factors. For example:
  • People
  • Environment
  • Health Issues
  • Accidents
  • Injuries
Typical modules

Module 1: Explore and understand roles in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people
Module 2: Understand legislation and policies which safeguard children and young people
Module 3: Develop personal skills to effectively contribute to the safeguarding of children and young people
