Child Protection Training for Special School Staff

Ensuring You Know Your Responsibilities and What to Do in any Situation

Unfortunately, children with special needs are more prone to abuse and less able to communicate. For this reason, special school staff have a particularly difficult but important child protection role. This course will help you understand the legislation and theory surrounding child protection and help you adapt and apply this in practice in a special school setting.
