A 12 WEEK QUALIFICATION DESIGNED TO DEVELOP KNOWLEDGE OF SAFEGUARDING AND PREVENT

This qualification will support learners to develop a knowledge and understanding of the ways in which young people may be vulnerable to harm, abuse or exploitation in the workplace and/or the learning environment. 


It will help the learner to understand the personal responsibilities required to keep young people safe, the role and responsibilities of different agencies, the legal context of safeguarding and the national guidelines for recognising and reporting situations where young people may be at risk of harm, abuse, and exploitation. 

 

Whether you are an employer, learner or colleague is it vital to be able to identify harm, abuse and exploitation, and more importantly to act upon it appropriately. 


We have developed an online training course comprising videos for each of the modules.
