Course Overview

We all have a duty in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those individuals with whom we come into contact with either during our work, family life or just being a member of the public.

This may be raising a concern, or passing on information or, if you are in a professional role, taking on more responsibilities to ensure that the processes for implementing company policy  are being dealt with correctly.

The Level 3 Award in Principles of Safeguarding and Protecting Children, Young People or Vulnerable Adults will cover the topics of Safeguarding Adult and Safeguarding Children, providing you with a recognised qualification to Ofqual Level 3.
