Do I need to complete the Child Protection Levels 1 and 2 courses first?
The courses build on each other and the content of the level 3 course assumes a good understanding of level 1 and 2, otherwise it would be quite easy to get lost in the level 3 course. If you are not sure, please do contact us and we will help you to find the most appropriate course or courses for you.
The level 1 Child Protection Awareness course gives you a basic understanding of safeguarding, signs and symptoms, 'what to do if', how to respond etc.
The Level 2 course gives you a more advanced knowledge of safeguarding issues and how to respond including Defining Safeguarding, significant-harm, abusive-behaviour, Every Child Matters (Current Status), Recognising-abuse, reporting, referrals (Section 47), consent, vulnerability, the law, multi-agency approach, policies / procedures, CRB-Disclosures, The Designated Person / Child Protection Officers explained, recruitment & allegations against professionals.
The level 3 course is for Designated Persons, Designated Senior Teachers / Staff, Child Protection Officers (CPOs) and those responsible for Safeguarding within their organisation or school / college.
In summary, you do need to complete the Child Protection Levels 1 and 2 courses first.
