Which level of Child Protection training do I need?

by Andydo
(Essex, UK)

Generally, if you come into contact with children during your place of work, you would complete the Child Protection Awareness Level 1 course. If you work with children you would then go on to do the level 2 advanced training. If you are a Designated Person (Child Protection Officer) or are working towards becoming one, you would go on to complete the Child Protection for Designated Person's course which is the level 3.

If you are the Designated Person (Child Protection Officer) for your organisation, generally you would re-do your Child Protection for Designated Persons level 3 course every two years. The levels 1 and 2 are generally completed every three years. But to be sure, check with your organisation for their particular needs and requirements.

Child Protection Level 1
by: Heather

I do not work with children but in my job I do come into contact with them and after reading your website, which is very clear, I realized that I needed to complete a child protection course
Level 1.
As I am always working and haven't got a lot of spare time, I completed your online course for CP1 at home and in my own time. The information in this course is great and it has helped me so much.
I now know what my position is in safe guarding children and what must be done when presented with this situation.
Thank you so much.

Child Protection Course levels
by: Anne

That's great. I was wondering which level of Child Protection training I need. I've completed levels 1,2 and 3 in the past but I now need to re-do my training. I'll book online.

The customer comments are fantastic and the Woodford Green hotel venue will be ideal. I see lunch is included.

Thanks again, I'm working towards becoming a Designated Person (Child Protection Officer).
