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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.


  • 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.
