Safeguarding Children And Vulnerable Young Adults



Safeguarding Children and vulnerable young Adults Diploma

It may come as a surprise to many that there are actual diploma courses in Safeguarding Children and vulnerable young Adults. The target audience consists of individuals who interact with this set on a daily basis, for instance, teachers, social workers, child advocates, counsellors etc. to warrant their safety and welfare. In our society, a lot of children go through abuse and ill-treatment. It is, therefore, the duty of adults to protect them and nurture them in a healthy environment. This course will touch upon important ideas like helping children maximize their potential, developing their skills and safeguarding them. It will enable all participants to hone the knowledge and abilities required to exercise this responsibility. Working with and for children is a satisfying and rewarding career choice that can help you to make a difference. As a community, our aim should be to develop a safe atmosphere for children and youngsters to prosper and grow into fine mature adults. The technical definition of a child is someone between the stage of infancy and adulthood. According to The United Nations Convention of 1989, on the Rights of the child, a child is an individual aged 0 to 18 years. The British criminal law, however, considers any person up to 14 years of age as a child, although they may be convicted from the age of 10 for any crime or offence. Consequently, an individual between 14 to 19 years of age is categorized as a teenager, youngster or adolescent. A person’s progress and growth are contingent on many environmental and genetic factors. When these are affected negatively, so will the youngster’s development. Even though the term ‘Safeguarding’ does not have a legal definition, it may be thought of in its basic form as ‘keeping the children safe from any abuse, injury, illness or harm’. Post the execution of ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda, ‘Safeguarding’ has replaced the term ‘Child Protection’. It is now the responsibility of each professional who works for and with children and adolescents to protect them emotionally, physically and sexually and to ensure that they are not neglected in any way by extending proper care. Children and young adults are easy targets and thus prone to being harmed in a lot of ways. It may not seem obvious to an outsider and hence, they need to keep their eyes and ears open to ensure the safety of the ward.
