Safeguarding and Child Protection for Short-term Volunteers and Helpers
Although legislation may make a distinction between staff and volunteers, the reality is child safety does not. Whether in direct or non-direct child-facing positions, it is important for everyone supporting organisations working with children and young people to receive some form of safeguarding and child protection training.
This eLearning course is specifically designed for short-term volunteers and helpers (e.g. someone supporting an organisation for an event(s) or a limited number of hours/days under a month's timeframe). Those supporting on a more regular basis should be receiving the same safeguarding and child protection support as staff, and some of our other eLearning courses can help you meet those needs.
This eLearning course is tailored to support volunteers and helpers access safeguarding and child protection training that is practical to their availability (most complete in less than an hour) and guides learners through:
- Common organisational safeguarding and child protection requirements.
- The safeguarding and child protection knowledge and skills needed to help learners in their volunteer/helper role.
