This is an advanced course designed for those who have received previous child protection training, for example the NSPCC's Introduction to child protection training.
The course features a range of methods linked to developing both knowledge and skills. These include small and large group exercises, formal input, case study materials and a DVD.
Varied and up-to date, socially and culturally sensitive.
Wide range of materials and resources provoked thought and discussion in a positive manner.
The course was over and above what I expected. Lots of evaluation of institution and professional conduct - very useful.
Perfect for the environment in which we work. The tutors even factored in additional aspects which the students requested.

I now feel much better equipped to deal with our vulnerable pupils and support them through difficult situations.
