Course Aims

This Level 2 course will give you a greater awareness of Safeguarding and the Prevent duty, the responsibilities and procedures involved and how to raise concerns effectively.

As well as attaining a nationally recognised qualification upon completion, you will gain a thorough understanding of the Prevent Duty and Safeguarding.

For Prevent, you will explore the key themes of:

  • extremism and terrorism
  • how to reduce the risk of radicalisation.

For Safeguarding, you will look at:

  • how to recognise signs of abuse or potential harm
  • know how to respond if abuse or harm is disclosed, suspected or alleged.

Finally, in the online safety unit, you will examine the potential consequences of inappropriate or illegal online activity, how to reduce the risks posed online, and how to spot signs and behavioural changes that could cause concern.
