Overall I have to say that the course content is very thorough & well laid out. You definitely have to read carefully, take notice of the case studies & make plenty of notes. I would recommend the course as it gives a really good understanding and prospect.
Very helpful. Now, I learned the role that social care plays in the safeguarding process. You are getting 9/10 for keeping a fair price of the course.
Just awesome! An informative course on child security and safeguarding procedures. Hopefully, it will be easier now to deal with the parents and family members of children.
