Ow could practice designed to safeguard young people be inporved?
You will need Book 2 chapter 8 and eReader articles which I will forward to you.
Your main source of material for answering this question is Book 2 Chapter 8, but both the articles from the eReader mentioned above will provide relevant additional information, especially in terms of developing strategies for good practice.
Your answer, should initially contain some discussion of the word safeguarding, your understanding of what this concept means, and why it is a topic of debate. In addition to the material provided, the learning guide suggests keeping track of developments on the relevant government websites as ideas around safeguarding continue to develop. (look at both UK and Irish websites please). This would enable you to also draw on the most up-to-date policy.
You should try to identify some of the issues that are particular to young people in this area of work, drawing on research to illustrate your points. There will certainly be additional material on from the DVD3 here, particularly from the institutions section. It would be also be appropriate to link your own experiences in a personal or professional capacity.
FINALLY, YOUR ANSWER SHOULD DISCUSS AT LEAST TWO LEARNING POINTS OR STRATEGIES THAT WOULD BE RELEVANT TO DEVELOPING PRACTICE FOR THIS AREA. (These last lines in capitals are very important instructions for this assignment).
