NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Safeguarding & Prevent
Safeguarding is about protecting people from abuse and ensuring their rights are upheld. If you work with children and young people, you may have completed numerous courses on safeguarding already. However, safeguarding is not a static subject. New threats emerge and better ways of working are developed that help to reduce the likelihood of harm and abuse happening to children and young people.
The ‘new threats’ of our time include cyber-bullying and cyberstalking, as well as online grooming for sexual exploitation. They also include the radicalisation of children and young people by extremists. This course combines three inter-related themes, safeguarding in general, online safety and the Prevent duty and aims to develop knowledge and understanding of how workers can comply with the Prevent duty and how to identify individuals at risk.
