Last week carers from Devon and Cornwall met in Bodmin to attend Child protection and CSE training run by Dialogue Training.
This training is part of our ongoing training and support package to our carers, and is mandatory training for all of our carers.
Child Protection (Safeguarding for foster carers – level 2) course covered:
What is child abuse and neglect?
Signs and indicators of abuse and neglect.
Normal child development
Maintaining a child focus
What to do in response to concerns
Documentation and sharing of information regarding concerns
Using the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families
Own safeguarding roles and responsibilities
The feedback was excellent and the course was both enjoyable and useful.
