If you work or volunteer with children and young people then you should undertake training to ensure you have the knowledge and skills you need to help keep children safe.
You may have heard terms like "safeguarding children level 3" or "level 1 safeguarding training". However, the definition of what levels 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 should cover varies depending on your sector and UK nation.
This means that different organisations may use the same terms but have different training requirements. We know it can seem confusing, so we recommend that you always check that the course aims and objectives meet your organisation's requirements. You'll find aims and objectives under the "What will I learn?" section on each of our course pages.
We provide learning to meet a range of needs – from our introductory courses for people with no previous experience to our advanced and specialist courses for specific roles or industries.
And, as the UK’s experts in safeguarding and child protection, we understand the issues that organisations and people working with children can face. All of our courses are developed using our expert knowledge and are kept up-to-date to make sure they meet the latest best practice, statutory guidance and legislation. What’s more, we provide a range of learning options – you can learn online, face-to-face or in a live virtual classroom.
Whichever course you choose, you’ll receive a personalised certificate of achievement and have access to further resources and information to help you protect children.
