7 reviews for Safeguarding Children – for Education (Levels 1 and 2)

It was interesting and very informative.
It was useful having the overview of each topic before the quiz as we were able to take in everything in order to complete the quiz.

Sam Roberts

It was excellent. I feel I am much more prepared for different situations that might arise.
It was very engaging and provided relevant information for safeguarding children, along with extra downloads for further study.

Sam Roberts

The course information has been very good and eye opening about the nature of abuse.
As this course was available to be studied online, I have taken in more information than I would have attending a course elsewhere.

Sam Roberts

very informative and provided many interesting facts that will assist with a teaching or support role in education.

Heather Sim

The units were a suitable length and provided a good background understanding of the issues. I liked the use of real scenarios and examples of dialogue – these were helpful.

Heather Sim

It gave a very good insight into how child protection and safeguarding is run further up in schools and education.

Heather Sim

I came into this course with no knowledge at all about this course. I now have a full understanding and hope I can use the information I have obtained to make sure the children in my care are safeguarded. I do not feel that there should be any changes.
