Q: What is the Safeguarding Children Module?

The course covers the fundamentals of safeguarding and its purpose is to raise your awareness of abuse and neglect, help you to recognise early signs there might be a problem, and show you how to take appropriate action.

Q: How long will it take me to complete the Safeguarding Children Module?

A: This will depend on a number of factors. The course is presented for a reading age of 12 years and as a guide you should be able to complete it in 2 – 5 hours.

Q: How often do I need to refresh my Safeguarding Children Course?

A: BASI recommends that all instructors that work with children in any capacity strive to keep their knowledge of safeguarding children updated. Although a current Safeguarding Children module is not currently required to keep your BASI licence valid, employers may ask for proof that your knowledge in this area is up-to-date, especially if you are going to be working with children. Completing regular refreshers is a good way to do this.  The refresher is an online module and bookings can be made by selecting the Safeguarding Children Refresher Course.
