Why take this course?

Safeguarding training gives you the knowledge you need to ensure you safeguarding and protect children from abuse and harm.

It is a statutory requirement that anyone who works with children have up to date knowledge and insights into safeguarding. In order to meet these requirements, you must ensure you complete training and regularly refresh it, which is why refresher courses are so important.

Though the company usually decides on how often safeguarding training needs to be refreshed, many choose every two years, though this will depend on the role and required responsibilities.
