2. Understanding safeguarding
In this unit learners will understand the term ‘safeguarding’, identify national policies and local systems that relate to safeguarding, know how to recognise signs of abuse or potential harm and know how to respond if abuse or harm is disclosed, suspected or alleged.
3. Understanding online safety
The aim of this unit is to understand the potential consequences of inappropriate or illegal online activity, how to reduce the risks posed online, and how to spot signs and behavioural changes that could cause concern.
