Learners will be assessed by means of practical assessments conducted throughout the course and a written theory test. They will receive a nationally recognised QA Level 2 award in Safeguarding & Protecting Children, Young People & Adults at Risk (RQF).
A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certificate will expire as dated on the certificate, irrespective of age.
