North Lanarkshire Child Protection Self Learning Pack
We support all of those working with children and young people to have, as a minimum a ‘foundation’ knowledge of child protection that allows them to recognise and respond to concerns about a child.
This self learning pack forms part of our earning and development materials.
It offers essential information on child protection issues for those who may not need to attend a learning and development event but require foundation level information to carry out their work, or are waiting to start their learning and development with us.
The contents of the pack should always be treated as first step information for those with an interest in this area and do not replace the need to take the further learning steps you may need.
