Child Neglect Certificate Course

Throughout the UK, nearly 10% of all children are experiencing or have experienced neglect. Living through this type of treatment can affect a person in childhood, as well as all the way through to adulthood.

Unfortunately, neglect is one of the hardest forms of child abuse to recognise, as it can appear subtly. In addition, many children who are neglected hide it as best they can, especially as they get older, and conditions worsen. Being able to identify the risk factors, signs and symptoms of child neglect can help you keep the children in your life safe.

This course goes into detail about child neglect. We begin by talking about the basic forms of neglect, including physical, emotional and educational, and how they manifest.

This knowledge is crucial to have, if there are any children in your life, regardless of your profession. Those engaged in occupations that deal directly with children have a special obligation to look out for the children in their lives, while the rest of us have a moral obligation to protect the children whom we know. This course goes into detail regarding child protection. We begin by giving you an introduction to child protection, including the rights that children have, as laid down by UK law and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Across the UK, nearly 87% of all children have played at least one sport in the last 12 months. This gives those who work and volunteer in the sporting industry a lot of contact and interaction with children. As a result of this extended contact and their position as an authority or trustworthy figure, these individuals have certain child protection responsibilities. Being aware of how to keep children safe when engaged in sports, both from dangers at home and risks from other children, is a key part of fulfilling these responsibilities.

Brilliant course. As a busy ,working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, education videos, important information you can't find online. The brilliant thing is that even after finishing the course you still can go back to your modules and view the videos again. The help from assistants is great. The minute I contacted them with question they always responded very quickly and professionally.

Monica Carter

I am considering a career change, so this seemed a good place to start. The course was comprehensive, for the price and easy to follow. The videos were also really helpful, to help put the information into context. The instructor was very down to earth and easy to follow.

It is helpful to be able to print out the course notes, to refer to at a later date. I will also re-watch the videos when I need to.

The test at the end was multiple choice. There may have been information relating to this on the website, but I didn't find it. The questions were very specific, so you do need to have revised before you take the test.

All in all, I am impressed, for the £40 I spent.

Kirsty Trenerry

I cannot recommend this course enough, and after seeing the standard of my current course, I can only assume others are to the same high standard.

One of the first things you will notice about the course is just how informative it is. The information given is in depth and intelligently written. I felt within the first 15 minutes of starting, I had a genuine understanding of the requirements of my course and the ways in which it would benefit me.

I have been working in hotels now for a few years and have made the step forward into a management role. This course has given me great confidence in my own abilities and is helping me understand just how much work goes into managing a hotel.

I cannot recommend this course enough! If you’re thinking of taking the plunge, perhaps making a career change or just starting out like me, then this course is the platform you need to boost your success.

Liam Hubbard

Was really nice to be able to sit through an online course and fly through it.

This is because my learning styles are predominantly read/write and/or kinaesthetic so being in a classroom listening to teachers is often mind numbing and other students tend to hold me back. This course was great for allowing me to work through at my own pace.

It was also great value for money and although I didn't need to request for student support, all confirmation emails came through quickly and efficiently so I am overall pleased with the service.

Good job New Skills Academy, looking forward to learning with you more in the future.

Christian Roach

I was a little sceptical about doing an online course as thought it wouldn't be very in depth, but how wrong I was!

Very thorough and covered everything yo could possibly need. I trained many years ago and wanted a refresh and this was perfect and enabled me to get my insurance and feel confident being back in the Beauty Industry.

I'm now about to start another refresh course on waxing and cant wait to get going, I will most certainly be back to do more. If you're unsure whether to do an online course, don't be, its a must. Highly recommended!

Sue Pearce

Great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method.

I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home. Being dyslexic, I enjoyed studying the modules in my own time. Support always on hand if needed, plus a bonus of being able to print off each module to add my own notes.

Easy to use layout of the course, allowed myself to swiftly go through each module, with a small test at the end of each module before moving on, making sure the knowledge had sunk in! With a final Test at the end to complete the Diploma. I would recommend this site to others, looking to add to their skill set.

Being aware of how to keep children safe when engaged in sports, both from dangers at home and risks from other children, is a key part of fulfilling these responsibilities.

The best way in which to keep the children in your life safe from this type of exploitation is to be armed with as much knowledge as possible.

Brilliant course. As a busy ,working mum this course gave a chance to change my career but it also gave me a chance to study in my own free time. Very easy wording, education videos, important information you can't find online. The brilliant thing is that even after finishing the course you still can go back to your modules and view the videos again. The help from assistants is great. The minute I contacted them with question they always responded very quickly and professionally.

Monica Carter

I am considering a career change, so this seemed a good place to start. The course was comprehensive, for the price and easy to follow. The videos were also really helpful, to help put the information into context. The instructor was very down to earth and easy to follow.

It is helpful to be able to print out the course notes, to refer to at a later date. I will also re-watch the videos when I need to.

The test at the end was multiple choice. There may have been information relating to this on the website, but I didn't find it. The questions were very specific, so you do need to have revised before you take the test.

All in all, I am impressed, for the £40 I spent.

Kirsty Trenerry

I cannot recommend this course enough, and after seeing the standard of my current course, I can only assume others are to the same high standard.

One of the first things you will notice about the course is just how informative it is. The information given is in depth and intelligently written. I felt within the first 15 minutes of starting, I had a genuine understanding of the requirements of my course and the ways in which it would benefit me.

I have been working in hotels now for a few years and have made the step forward into a management role. This course has given me great confidence in my own abilities and is helping me understand just how much work goes into managing a hotel.

I cannot recommend this course enough! If you’re thinking of taking the plunge, perhaps making a career change or just starting out like me, then this course is the platform you need to boost your success.

Liam Hubbard

Was really nice to be able to sit through an online course and fly through it.

This is because my learning styles are predominantly read/write and/or kinaesthetic so being in a classroom listening to teachers is often mind numbing and other students tend to hold me back. This course was great for allowing me to work through at my own pace.

It was also great value for money and although I didn't need to request for student support, all confirmation emails came through quickly and efficiently so I am overall pleased with the service.

Good job New Skills Academy, looking forward to learning with you more in the future.

Christian Roach

I was a little sceptical about doing an online course as thought it wouldn't be very in depth, but how wrong I was!

Very thorough and covered everything yo could possibly need. I trained many years ago and wanted a refresh and this was perfect and enabled me to get my insurance and feel confident being back in the Beauty Industry.

I'm now about to start another refresh course on waxing and cant wait to get going, I will most certainly be back to do more. If you're unsure whether to do an online course, don't be, its a must. Highly recommended!

Sue Pearce

Great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method.

I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home. Being dyslexic, I enjoyed studying the modules in my own time. Support always on hand if needed, plus a bonus of being able to print off each module to add my own notes.

Easy to use layout of the course, allowed myself to swiftly go through each module, with a small test at the end of each module before moving on, making sure the knowledge had sunk in! With a final Test at the end to complete the Diploma. I would recommend this site to others, looking to add to their skill set.
