Course description

Our Safeguarding Everyone Level 3 Refresher has been designed for anyone who has previously completed the training before, whether that is through digital means or face-to-face, and is looking to update and refresh their knowledge.

Anyone who works with children and vulnerable adults has safeguarding responsibilities, but these will vary depending on your role. Our Level 3 refresher course is aimed at mangers, supervisors or designated safeguarding leads.

The course covers the topics you need to know to carry out your responsibilities including signs, symptoms and types of abuse, legislation and guidance and how they impact your role, what to do if a child or adult discloses abuse, including reporting and recording duties.

We also offer Safeguarding Everyone Training at Level 1 and Level 2

Unsure if you require Level 1, 2 or 3 Safeguarding Everyone training? Check out our short guide to find the course that best matches your needs and requirements here.

Why take this course?

If you work with children or vulnerable adults then you have a duty to safeguard. Training is required though to help you fully understand your responsibilities and to be able to carry them out effectively. But it isn’t a topic that can be learnt once, it is topic which changes regularly and so it is important that training is kept up to date – this is why refresher courses are so important.

Companies can decide how often their employees need to update their training, but a common recommendation is every two years. This may vary, though, depending on your role and responsibilities.

Course Overview

The learner is always at the heart of our course design, and this course is no different. It is filled with bite-sized modules, covering both children and vulnerable adults, which allow you to dip in and out of the topics as you like. The digital format allows you to work at your own pace and at a time and place that suits you, providing you with the flexibility that is desired in our busy working lives.

We have also created a number of immersive real-world scenarios and challenges to help embed the learning, and provide a context to help relate the learning to your role.
