Our Safeguarding Level 2 training course is suitable for learners working, or wishing to work, with children and young people.

This includes those in voluntary or unpaid positions. Our Safeguarding Level 2 training course covers how to safeguard and protect children, young people and practitioners in the workplace as well as how to respond to evidence or concerns that a child or young person has been abused. Children are those aged below 16 and young people are those aged between 16 and 18.

The Children’s Act 2004 places duties on a range of organisations to ensure they have regard to the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes the need for appropriate safeguarding training, as employers are responsible for ensuring staff are competent to carry out their responsibilities towards safeguarding of children and young people. Our Safeguarding Level 2 training course would meet this requirement.


This is a full day course and will usually be delivered over 6 hours with learners being given tasks to complete in preparation for the course.
