A range of Safeguarding related subjects are covered including:
- Safeguarding legislation and guidance
- Roles and responsibilities
- Abuse and neglect
- Identifying concerns and disclosure
- Making judgements
- Reporting safeguarding concerns
The qualification is assessed by a written assessment including open and multiple-choice questions. A learner must successfully pass the written assessment to achieve the qualification. There is no grading of the assessment; learners pass or are referred.
A Level 1 Award in Awareness of Safeguarding will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. The qualification does not have an expiry date, but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies, procedures and new legislation through ongoing CPD is vital.
