Child Protection & Safeguarding in the Museum and Heritage Sector (Artswork)

Thursday 25th April 2019

‘Most engaging and in-depth course I’ve been on for a long time. Really encouraged me to think how I can embed learning in the organisation infrastructure.’ (Course Participant 2016)

As we strive to give children and young people more creative opportunities to engage with the stories and objects that tell our history, it is crucial to remain up to date with legislation surrounding child protection and duty of care.

Designed for individuals and organisations in the museum and heritage sector, this course provides a full update on current child protection legislation, including the Disclosure and Barring Service, the Duty to Refer and Working Together. Through relevant case studies, peer discussion and the practical advice and guidance of our expert trainer, you will develop useful procedures and build confidence around child protection issues relevant to your setting.

This course is being delivered in conjunction with the Royal Collection Trust and Windsor Castle Learning Team. The day will also feature a guided tour of Windsor Castle – the perfect opportunity to contextualise this sector-specific learning experience.
