With a change in government documents, it was important as a trainee to undergo updated safeguarding training. This involved revising important legislations, statistics and facts. Various tests were taken throughout in order to test knowledge, understanding and awareness. At the end we were given a certificate as proof of this training.
I found this extremely important for practice as it helps ensure children are kept safe and protected from harm within the classroom. It also taught me the procedures to undergo if presented with a safeguarding case.
My next step when on Professional Practice Phase 1B will be to have a meeting with the DSO, to understand the policies and procedures of the school.
