This training programme is aimed at staff and volunteers in the youth sector, working with young people with general responsibilities in relation to safeguarding, but who do not have specific responsibilities in their role in relation to child protection.
This three day course is aimed at those with the role and responsibility of a Child Protection Designated Liaison Person within their youth organisation. It aims to provide participants with the information to carry out this important role in an effective manner.
This training supports youth leaders to engage with young people’s online life and to promote online safety. It looks at both the risks that are prevalent for young people online while also identifying the opportunities that exist for young people online.
