What opportunities will this course give me?

Safeguarding and prevention is a vital component of many important roles; both professional and personal. It is crucial that individuals have a thorough understanding of it in order to best support those in their care. However, we also know that the training required to sufficiently deliver safeguarding is not always accessible.

Thats why we are delighted to deliver our level 2 award in Understanding Safeguarding and Prevent fully funded. The course is taught through distance learning, opening it up to an even wider pool of students, and youll leave the programme with a nationally recognised qualification that will enhance your CV, employability and life skills.

This qualification is designed specifically for those responsible for safeguarding others, and is a valuable segway into further training and development.

Why is this course for me?

Successful completion of the programme will result in a VRQ: this is a national, professional qualification which will develop your professional development and capacity.

The course is available fully funded for learners over 19 and unemployed or those in employment and over 23. Eastleigh also provides full funding for any students aged 19-23 who hold a level 2 award or higher; our mission is to make this course as easy to access as possible.

Students will build their knowledge of safeguarding in an environment where they have a duty of care. On successful completion of the course, you will possess a sound understanding of:

●The Prevent Duty
●Online safety
●The elements of safeguarding (and your role in them)

This is a remote learning course, meaning learners can work on their own timeframe and at a pace that works for them. You will never need to attend the College meaning you will be part of a community of students from across the UK and beyond.

In addition, the programme will be closely aligned to your specific work environment, allowing you to put your new skills into action from the word go.

How will my learning be enhanced?

You will leave the programme with a nationally recognised qualification; one that will enhance all CVs and future applications.

Its a thorough and interesting course with a huge potential to widen your opportunities. We look forward to welcoming you to the programme.
