Safeguarding in Higher Education

Course Overview

Safeguarding in a higher education context is about being as proactive as possible, rather than waiting for problems to arise.

The Safeguarding Elearning Course is specifically designed to equip staff with the confidence to deal with safeguarding issues, recognise signs of neglect and abuse, to know the steps necessary to report these issues, and empower staff with the knowledge and tools they need to get support or take action.

This Safeguarding Elearning Course has 9 sections:

  • Introduction
  • Legislation & Guidance
  • Recognising Abuse
  • Institutional Abuse
  • Responding to Abuse
  • Disclosure
  • Whistle Blowing
  • Prevent
  • Assessment – a quiz at the end of the course tests learners’ knowledge on the subject. Pass rates can be set as required.
