Welcome to Principal Resourcing’s Level 2 Safeguarding course.

For our candidates, we recommend this course follows our Level 1 (basic safeguarding).

For other professionals, this course will provide theoretical and case study based learning to enhance your basic safeguarding awareness. This course aims to develop your confidence in carrying out your role in safeguarding children whether you are new to working with children and young adults or are wanting to refresh your safeguarding knowledge. Once completed you will receive a certificate and we recommend you refresh your safeguarding certificate every 2 years.

Each module will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. At the end of the course you will be asked a selection of questions and you will need to achieve a pass rate of 80% to gain your certificate. We recommend you take notes on any relevant information not only for your records but also to assist in taking the end test.

Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility. Following on from our basic safeguarding course, the level 2 course will not only emphasise your current safeguarding knowledge but also help to increase and maintain this.
