Course Overview

Working with children and young people brings many extra dynamics to risk assessing and professionals need to consider issues such as behaviours and vulnerability in additional to environmental risks, and consideration needs to be made to high risk and potently highly dangerous behaviours including aggression, violence, bullying, sexualised behaviour and anti-social conduct.

This training course focuses on risks which are specific to working with children and young people and considers the different types of behaviours and risks, how these can be presented and the primary and secondary interventions which can be used in vulnerable situations.

This training course discusses personal, professional and legal boundaries and identifies ways of completing both planned and dynamic risk assessments. This is a Level 3 accredited course.
