Introduction to Supporting Vulnerable Groups (Children)
In a nutshell
Recognising the signs that a child may be struggling or is vulnerable at an early stage can have a profound effect on a child’s development.
This is an introductory course which will help learners to understand what vulnerability is, how to identify vulnerable groups and to consider the challenges that specific vulnerable groups face.
This course is for...
...you work as childcare professional and want to gain additional knowledge.
...you are studying childcare and want to gain experience to compliment your learning or further prepare you to enter employment.
Learners will consider what vulnerability is and how vulnerability is classified. Learners will then look at vulnerable groups such as children living with domestic violence, young refugees, asylum seekers and migrants and looked after children.
Learners will also look at vulnerabilities that arise from growing up in a digital age and childhood in the 21st Century.
There are no formal qualifications required for this course. You’ll be expected to commit to 3 hours and to fully engage in all components of the course. No formal assessment is required, however we expect candidates to undertake all activities with enthusiasm and display respect for others.
Learners can progress to other part time options offered within the school which will complement this course and continuous professional development. An example course is the Highfield Level 2 Award in Induction to Mental Health Awareness.
