Level 4

Within this short course you will focus on safeguarding as a fundamental aspect of supporting young children’s safety and well-being within early years settings, support services and their home environment.

You will examine the theory, policy and legislation that underpins how we keep children safe and make links to practice to develop a broader understanding of safeguarding.

Multi-agency working is examined to develop your awareness of how agencies work together to support best outcomes for children and families. Within this you will identify barriers and limitations to effective partnership working and how these can be potentially overcome to ensure the needs of children and families are met.

Entry Requirements

For all level 4 modules you would need a level 3 qualification such as an NVQ 3, BTEC National or Access to HE.  You must also be working or volunteering within an educational environment.

All candidates will need to apply and attend a course guidance interview to ensure your placement is appropriate and will enable you to pass the module.
