Course description

Safeguarding Officer Training Level 3

A designated safeguarding officer is responsible for managing, recording and reporting any concerns regarding the welfare and safety of a child. As the first point of contact for other members of staff and concerned families, it is a safeguarding officer’s duty to understand how to carry out safety procedures to protect children within the workplace and ensure their wellbeing is paramount.

This Safeguarding Officer Training level 3 Course introduces you to the responsibilities and duties of social care work and how to comply with safeguarding laws. Each module covers key principles such as recognising the physical and mental signs of abuse, how to record concerns and how to react professionally to different situations.

On course completion you’ll have an excellent understanding of the responsibilities of a safeguarding officer, how to respond varying levels of abuse and neglect, and how to ensure the safety of children under your professional care.
