The starting point for this module is to look at why you need to undertake training on the protection of children and young people. All adults who come into contact with children in their work have a duty of care to safeguard and promote their welfare. Practitioners have a key role in shaping the futures of young people. The vast majority of adults working with young children act professionally to provide a safe and supportive environment. However, in this area of work, tensions and misunderstandings can also occur.

How it Works
Beginning with Module 1, read through each module carefully, and at your own pace, ensuring that you have understood and absorbed its content. On completing a module, please attempt to answer the corresponding questionnaire for that module, for example, Module 1 and Questionnaire 1, Module 2 and Questionnaire 2, and so on.
Each questionnaire is presented in a multiple choice format; simply select the answer you believe is correct and click on the ?Next? button. You may review the content of the module at any point, including before submitting your answer, by clicking on the ?Review Module Content? link at the bottom of each page.
Your score for each questionnaire appears as soon as you have completed the last question. If you have attained the pass criteria of 70%, you can move on to the next module.
You have 1 attempt to pass each questionnaire; if you fail to reach 70% per questionnaire, you may still access and complete other parts of the program but will need to repeat the programme again (at an extra cost to you) in order to receive your course certificate.
To complete the programme, you must work through all the modules (ie open each page), as well as attain the pass criteria for that programme. You may exit the programmes at any point by clicking ?Save and Return? in the top right hand corner. Later, when you re-open the programme, you will automatically be returned to the place you left off.
On completion of the programme, you will automatically be sent an email confirming your pass or failure status, along with appropriate instructions as to what to do next.
In this programme we use children and young people interchangeably. There are variations in terminology, legislation, guidance and practice relating to child protection in the different nations of the UK. However, the principles are broadly the same and this programme is intended to be relevant to all those whose work (paid or unpaid) brings them into contact with children and young people. For nation-specific information, you will find it useful to visit the websites listed at the end of module four.
