Course description

Modules cover a range of subjects from child development, risk factors and forms of abuse, to significant case reviews, the legal framework and promoting good practice.

This training course was formerly entitled 'Child Protection Level 3' but has been renamed to avoid confusion. It is a Level 3 course with regards to academic levels, but is not designed to meet the Level 3 training standards required by any Local Safeguarding Children Board for a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) which are based on a different grading system and are different within each Local Authority.

The course will complement any face-to-face training that staff may already have received, and provides evidence of learning.

The nine-module course delivers 9 CPD credits and covers:

  • Child development
  • Parenting and risk factors
  • Forms of child abuse
  • Specific Safeguarding Issues
  • Recognising and Responding to Abuse
  • Child Protection System
  • Learning from Failure
  • The Legal Framework
  • Promoting Good Practice

    What customers say

    I have just started the Child Protection – course, which I will also be getting for all my senior staff. For me, EduCare has saved lots of time and money because I have not had to send any of my staff out for training and cover their absence with agency staff.

    Nathan Sweetman, Nursery Manager, Teddies Nursery

    I thought this was excellent training. As a Headmaster, I am involved in Child Protection cases in the school. Whilst I was confident of the frameworks, etc, this training was very reassuring. Well done.

    Alexander Mitchell, Headmaster, Holmwood House School

    Very engaging content, easy to load, use and review. Very happy with the training.
