If you work in childminding we have the perfect child protection course for you. The Child Protection for Childminders course has been written specifically for childminders by our child protection experts in collaboration with a leading Childminders Associations.  Because the course is online there is access 24 hours a day, so you can take it at a time that suits you.  The course can be stopped and started as often as you like, it will automatically take you back to where you were next time you log in.  In total the course takes about  two hours to complete and once you have passed the final assessment you will get a personalised certificate valid for two years.

The course consists of ten modules and includes:

  • abuse and identifying concerns
  • legislation and guidance
  • child protection policies and procedures
  • communication and confidentiality
  • working with other agencies
  • handling allegations and complaints
  • how and when to make referrals

Incorporated throughout the course is information, case studies and questions specifically relevant to those working in childminding. At the end of the course there are useful downloads, references and sample childminding policies, all of which, along with the course content, remain accessible for the two year duration of the course certificate.
