The aim of the module is to explore the protection and safeguarding of children and young people in the 21st century. It focuses on identifying signs of abuse and the strategies for early intervention and action, with emphasis on child-centred approaches.
The module: • studies child protection procedures in place to safeguard children; • looks at importance of effective communication and co-operation between relevant agencies, and of evaluating the consequences when there are failings. • compares the development of child protection to present day provision, and the strategies to safeguard and assess children and young people at risk.
