Why choose this qualification?
The objective of the Gateway Qualifications Level 2 Award in Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Young People is to provide learners with knowledge and understanding to safeguard children, young people and practitioners in the workplace and how to respond to evidence or concerns that a child or young person has been abused.
There is no requirement for learners to have prior skills, knowledge or understanding, although the learners may already be working within children and young people. Centres delivering this qualification can download a Safeguarding Learning and Assessment Workbook which contains learning materials and a workbook to assist learners in recording their evidence. Please contact Gateway Qualifications to obtain this.
The qualification does not specifically link to any framework, but is based on the National Occupational Standards for Promoting the Safeguarding of Children and Young People.
This qualification could lead to further learning to support the development of children and young people or into initial teacher training for the further education sector.
This qualification is available to study through our partnership with Curriculum and Quality Solutions (CQS). For more information and prices please visit the CQS website.
