Safeguarding is important in protecting and promoting the welfare of people who are classed as vulnerable. These people need be cared for in an environment that is as safe as possible.

This course is suitable for individuals working in a workplace environment or education setting that may encounter challenging behaviour. This course investigates the difference between conflict and behaviour that challenges, and aggression vs assertive behaviour. You will look at the impact and possible justification for these behaviours, considering what the root cause could be. This course will equip you with pro-active strategies to support positive behaviour.
