What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding refers to the actions that are taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding children involves the following:

    • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
    • preventing harm to children’s health or development
    • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
    • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

Is safeguarding children the same as child protection?

Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.

Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children in the UK up to the age of 18.

What is the UK's ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, The Mandatory Training Group works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.

This online safeguarding children training course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
