Course description

Child Protection Level 3 provides an opportunity for anyone who has undergone basic child protection training to learn about the subject in greater detail and at a higher level.

This training course is not designed to meet the training standards required by any Local Safeguarding Children Board for a designated safeguarding lead (DSL) but 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 hours and covers:

  • Child development
  • parenting and risk factors
  • the forms of abuse and signs of abuse
  • other harm
  • responding to abuse
  • reporting abuse and the child protection system
  • the legal framework
  • working together.

    What customers say

    I have just started the Child Protection – Level 3 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.
