Cultural Awareness in Safeguarding

This 3 week online course will provide you with an awareness of cultural, ethnic and religious identities and practices when considering safeguarding issues that may present themselves.

What will I learn? 

During each session, you will develop an awareness and understanding of:

  • Different cultural groups in the UK
  • The term Safeguarding
  • How language, cultural identity and belief systems may impact on the children and adults within the family
  • How this may impact on the family’s ability to safeguard their children
  • How our own cultural identity impacts on others

You will have access to your teacher on a weekly basis through Skype, email and Google Classroom as well as the opportunity to contribute to group discussions across the County. Every session you will be given tasks to complete where instructions and online demonstrations will be provided.

Who should join?

This course is for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of cultural practices and how this might impact on Safeguarding issues.
