I have now completed 'Safeguarding children' with e-learning at work. Another really good course, and essential for anyone working with children. I also e-mailed them to give them some feedback on the course content.
I have included links to some of the key statutory documents in this post.
During this course you will hear many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to children, the types of abuse suffered, how to recognise the signs of abuse and key safeguarding legislations put in place to minimise the abuse of children. Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse, and know the steps you should take if you suspect it you will be better able to protect the children in your care.
The course covers the following modules:
Introduction to Safeguarding Children
Types of Abuse, who may carry it out and why children may not tell
How to Recognise the Signs of Abuse
What to do if you suspect a child is being
Sexual Harassment in the work place
Just completed another course with e-learning at work. This a really useful course, a lot to take in, but an essential topic. I would encourage EVERYONE to undertake this training, then hold your employer to account. In the light of everyone's invited I would encourage Parent / Guardians to do the same, so that schools can be held to account too.
The third case study is very disturbing for another reason. Nothing was mentioned about those staff members (inc the headteacher) being struck off from teaching given what happened. You need to do the course to find out more.
This course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. You'll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent. It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations. The course also covers investigation from the employer's perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.

Creative Education: Teaching for Students with PMLD
2nd April 2021
Completed another Creative Education course today. Teaching for Students with PMLD
People with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) access the world around them in variety of different ways, it is our responsibility to present information and experiences in a way that will enable them to explore their own values, independence and become active participators in society. We can support this through offering experiences that are presented in a meaningful way for the individual and using a range of strategies, techniques and creativity. There is not just one fix but many facets and multiple elements that help enhance this drive to explore, understand and participate. Through this course, Sonya will offer practical advice tips and ideas on planning and delivering engaging, fun and exciting theme or topic-based activities to people with PMLD.
I just wish I could WORK somewhere and make use of this. I am not doing this for the sake of it, I am doing this to improve skills, knowledge and expertise.
Creative Education: Spot the Warning Signs of Poor Mental Health
Spot the Warning Signs of Poor Mental Health
Completed another Creative Education course today. This is an excellent course, mostly a summary of some of the key points / advice covered in previous courses. So what to look out for to spot signs a child may be having issues with mental heath, changes in their behaviour, physical appearance, interests and hobbies or perhaps their academic performance is going higher, due to them trying very hard not to fail, (so opposite extreme to their academic performance falling) trying to please self and others too much.
So some really good advice here.
I just wish I could WORK somewhere and make use of this.
