What is the Introduction to Adult/Child Protection – Level 1 course?

This is an online adult and child safeguarding course, specifically designed for people who need to be trained in both child protection and adult safeguarding. By combining what has traditionally been two separate courses into one, saves both time and money.

The course will give you an introduction to safeguarding and raise your awareness of:

  • The applicable legislation and guidance
  • The different types of abuse
  • Signs and indicators of abuse and neglect
  • How to respond to concerns

The course is compliant with all government guidance including local safeguarding board requirements, CQC requirements, Level One Introduction to Child Protection as detailed in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2010 and the Ofsted inspection framework. It covers everything from concern to referral, so suits the needs of any worker in any field.

The course comprises of seven short modules followed by an assessment to test understanding. It should take around an hour to complete, although it can be paused and restarted at any time. Click here for a full course breakdown.

On successful completion you can download a personalised Training Course Certificate, which is valid for 2 years.
