About the course
This course is for local authority-licenced chaperones.
The course can also be taken by those working in professional or amateur entertainment industries (for example, dance schools, amateur dramatics, choirs, television and film production companies, and professional theatres) who want to know more about a chaperone’s role and responsibilities, the statutory requirements and how best to protect children.
Children see the world through their incredible imaginations. This is especially true when they are taking part in an exciting activity, such as acting in a theatre production or being involved in a TV programme. But these exciting activities can be risky to children if they are not properly protected.

- recognise areas of concern
