Identify the Signs of the Four Main Types of Abuse

This is an introductory course for all staff and volunteers working directly with children in schools. It is important that everyone who works with children has a good understanding of the signs and symptoms of abuse, so that they can take action to protect children who are suffering harm. This course will guide you through the four main types of abuse and some of the things you might see, hear or experience if a child you know is being abused or neglected.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
