5 reviews for Safeguarding Children (Level 2)

This course was excellent and handy to do in work time.
It gave me all the information needed and was brilliant that you could print the refresher guides.

Rachael Asling

I was shocked by the high percentage of abuse victims and this is only what gets reported.
I feel more knowledgeable having done this course and now feel confident about reports and disclosures should the need arise.

Rachael Asling

I feel much more confident now in terms of the procedures for recognising/dealing with and reporting child abuse.
The course was really informative and very interesting.

Rachael Asling

I definitely feel much more confident in dealing with safeguarding and child protection. Thank you.
The course was excellent for filling all the gaps and confusion I had in regards to safe-guarding and child protection.

Rachael Asling

I found this course tremendously useful and interesting.
It is highly informative on a situation which can be very devastating but clearly goes through the actions of what should be done.
