Child Protection and Safeguarding in the Arts and Cultural Sector

Of benefit to individuals and organisations looking to update their understanding of child protection legislation and best practice, this course provides a full update on current child protection legislation, including the Disclosure and Barring service, the Duty to Refer and Working Together.

The day will provide practical advice to help you develop sensible structures and build confidence around child protection issues, within the context of developing and delivering creative and cultural projects for children and young people.  The course also includes a “safe touch” section, exploring how child protection guidelines can be maintained within more physical art forms.
