Every child has the right to love, care and protection, but two children die every week in the UK due to some form of abuse. You can help. You need to help. You have a duty of care!

So why the big deal? Why do you need to know this? Well working directly with children means it's your duty to care and you have a big role to play in helping to protect children. Let's face it, no one wants to hear about this or let alone have to deal with it, but the reality is you might have to!

To ensure that your staff have the tools they need to help cope with and be aware of the issues and warning signs, we have created an engaging, digital training video which will provide all the information needed to ensure your staff can do their very best to help protect and care for the children they work with.


We have recently updated this resource to include information about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) together with an interactive version of the video. This incorporates all the video content separated into ten sections along with the questionnaire that the user must answer correctly to progress through the video. Once completed they can print or save their certificate saving you time and trouble. This is perfect for independent training and ensures the complete video has been watched and understood.

Ideal for training new staff or updating current staff, this is perfect for making everybody aware of their statutory and moral obligation to help protect the children they work with.

This short, to-the-point film gives you all the information you need from what types of abuse there are, what signs to look out for, to how you make a referral. After watching this video your staff we be totally up to date with all child protection training requirements and current issues.

This video has been approved by the LSCB (Local Safeguarding Children's Board).

“I have great pleasure in both recommending and endorsing this Child Protection training video. I am well aware of the tremendous amount of effort, consultation and research that has gone into the making of this short film. We have had the opportunity to contribute towards the final version of the film and I am confident that it will be a positive tool for schools to use. Kay Alexander gives it real credibility. I can see that it will be particularly useful in the induction of new staff who have joined the establishment since their whole school training; equally it could easily be used at the beginning of a new term or school year to refresh colleagues’ memory to the importance of their role in safeguarding children and young people. You will also be making a positive contribution to ChildLine in their 25th year of supporting children, as half of your contribution will be donated to them.”
