Course Description

Safeguarding for Students

Learning about safeguarding for students is potentially life-saving information that all students should understand, whether they’re in school, college, university or training within a company. There are certain responsibilities and rights that students have, to ensure their personal safety, and we cover all of them in this concise and informative course. We take an in-depth look at the reasons for safeguarding, the legislation that exists and the rights of students to be kept safe, including the precise laws and the key players involved in them. We also provide a detailed guide to staying safe at all types of educational facilities, including tips, strategies and recourse to take when safety is breached. Finally, we devote an entire module to one of the most important safety issues facing students: digital safeguarding.
