Practical Safeguarding

Safeguarding and early intervention is everyone’s business. It is important to make sure that the front line early years practitioners know what is expected of them.

But how does it feel to be part of the safeguarding process? What does safeguarding look like and what does it feel like?

About the Course

This programme is like watching a serious case review unfold before it happens. It allows practitioners to see first-hand the mistakes that are so easily made within a busy early years environment. Do you believe the parent? What if they are long standing customers and more like friends?

What exactly is Early Intervention and how can Early Years staff build a team around the family or child?

This challenging and hard hitting programme leaves nowhere to hide as students reflect on their own practice and identify with some of the mistakes the Snuggles team makes.
