Customer feedback on this course

  • Excellent course, this is the best safeguarding module I have taken. Well explained through videos.
  • Very informative and comprehensive.
  • This has been an excellent source of information presented in a clearly understandable format.
  • The videos were extremely good and realistic. They give a much better insight into what the different types of abuse are and how they occur.
  • Seeing real case reports made it very clear how one individual can make a huge difference in a child's life. It was good to see how the process works after reporting rather than just how to report.
