Staff may not carry caseloads but still come into contact with children, families or carers. This could be over the telephone or face to face. All staff that come into contact with children, families or carers need to have an awareness of safeguarding. This involves being able to recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse and know how to manage and record a disclosure of abuse.
This course is a basic awareness level 1 course. It is for staff whose work brings them into contact with children, families or carers. If staff work with children, families or carers on a regular basis or carry a case load, they need to complete the Level 2 course.
