Safeguarding Children - Level 2

Skills for Health
Delivery Method: eLearning

Safeguarding children is everyone’s business but certain professional groups (including police, teachers and healthcare staff) have statutory responsibilities with regards to safeguarding children and child protection. This safeguarding children course includes safeguarding children at level 2 and is suitable for workers who work with children or parents/ carers on regular basis.

The safeguarding children level 2 eLearning course provides staff with a more detailed understanding of the issues associated with safeguarding children and child protection.

***NOTE: Safeguarding Children level 1 is a prerequisite for level 2, therefore this level 2 course should only be purchased if you have you have previously completed level 1. If you haven’t completed level 1, then our Safeguarding Children levels 1 & 2 bundle offers the best value for the two courses***

Yes, the course was good and provided what I needed for training purposes as well as education. I like the way it was structured.
One thing, putting a line entitled Manager's signature on the certificate is difficult... I do not have a manager as I work as a locum or for an agency.
Response from Skills for Health
