Sound Connections in partnership with the Musicians Union presents an all-day training course on Child Protection Awareness.
Whilst teaching you have a legal duty to safeguard children and young people with whom you work with. This can be challenging in the field of music. You might work on a one to one basis or with small groups. You may give lessons in your home, at the students homes, or at school. So it is vitally important that you know how to protect your students and keep them safe from harm.
This workshop aims to:
- Develop awareness of, and the ability to act on concerns about, the safety and welfare of children and young people.
- Develop awareness of safer working practices for musicians who work with young people.
By the end of the training participants will be aware of:
- Background about the legislative framework within which childrens welfare is safeguarded and promoted
- What to do if they have concerns about children in order to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, including those who are suffering, or at risk of suffering, significant harm
- What will happen once they have informed someone about those concerns
- Safe working practices in music teaching
