‘Most engaging and in-depth course I’ve been on for a long time. Really encouraged me to think how I can embed learning in the organisation infrastructure.’ (Course Participant 2016)

Of benefit to individuals and organisations looking to update their understanding of child protection legislation and best practice, this course provides a full update on current child protection legislation, including the Disclosure and Barring service, the Duty to Refer and Working Together.

The day will provide in-depth practical advice to help you develop sensible structures and build confidence around child protection issues, within the context of developing and delivering creative and cultural projects for children and young people. The course also includes a “safe touch” section, exploring how child protection guidelines can be maintained within more physical art forms such as dance and theatre.

Ideal for:

  • Arts and cultural professionals who work with children and young people
  • Those whose roles include outreach and community work
  • Designated Safeguarding Officers within creative organisations

You will gain:

  • An update on current child protection legislation and best practice
  • Information on the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and how to handle disclosure
  • Ideas for developing child protection policies
  • Safe Touch – information on how child protection guidelines can be maintained within more physical art forms
