With the threat to our children’s physical and mental health on the rise from new avenues such as the internet and social media, it has never been more important to equip ourselves with the ability to recognise a child in trouble and understand the ways in which we can help safeguard them.

This Child Protection Level 1 (Scotland) course, developed by industry training experts, Espirita, is designed for all non-clinical staff who work within healthcare and addresses current legislation surrounding child protection in Scotland. By creating an educated, competent and committed workforce of vigilant practitioners, we can stop vulnerable children from ‘slipping through the net’.
