Introduction to the National Guidance for Child Protection (Scotland) 2021

The National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2021 describes the responsibilities and expectations of everyone who works with, or comes into contact with children and young people, families and carers in Scotland. It sets out how agencies should work together with children and young people, families, carers and communities to protect children and young people from abuse, neglect and exploitation and replaces the 2014 National Guidance.
Through a blend of mixed media presentation, including video and audio the module will guide you through key messages of the National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2021, in a clear, straightforward and interesting way to help ensure competent, skilled and confident workforce, working collaboratively in local communities with the public to protect our children and young people.
