Level 2 Safeguarding Adults and Children at Risk – online

The Level 2 Safeguarding Adults and Children at Risk, regulated by Ofqual, is an accredited qualification for those working around ‘at risk’ adults and children who require a detailed knowledge of how to safeguard them from harm.

Our online course and assessment is designed for those working in, or preparing to work in, a setting where they have a duty of care to children and young people or vulnerable adults. This important qualification enables public service interpreters working in settings like hospitals and social care to make a positive difference to the lives of those at they are working on behalf of.

There are no formal entry requirements and the user-friendly course and assessment can be taken by anyone over the age of 16.

Online course

Our Level 2 Safeguarding Adults and Children Risk online course provides the knowledge and understanding necessary to ensure that those they are working with are protected from abuse, exploitation, and radicalisation in line with relevant legislation and best practice.
