Child Protection Level 3 for Practitioners – Due to the success of the launch of the Child Protection Training website, Child Protection Training have launched a specialised training course specifically aimed towards General Practitioners and all staff who are responsible for safeguarding children within their organisation. Child Protection level 3 is for the Designated Senior Person/Child Protection Officer, in line with Ofsted Inspection Framework 2012, latest government legislation and guidance including Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013.
It is now also a requirement of the General Medical Council that Doctors, Nurses or Health Practitioners working directly with children must complete Level 3 training. The aim of the course is to promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice and for practitioners to be able to identify instances in which there are grounds for concern regarding a child’s welfare and initiate or take the appropriate action to keep them safe. The course focuses on a review of current knowledge, up to date legislation and regulation, multi-agency working, safer recruitment and local Safeguarding Children’s Boards policies and procedures.
The course meets government guidance,” Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013 including OFSTED new inspection frame work 2012/OFSTED section 5 inspection framework updated 2014”
Child Protection Level 3 Designated person training is for the lead person within Education, Social Care, Residential staff, Social Workers, YOT managers, Early Years, General Practitioners, NHS (such as Paediatricians) and independent Health contractors, and anyone who is responsible for a lead role for safeguarding children within their organisation.

Jan Harrison also said, “We have been in consultation with a number of Health Care Practitioners and Private organisations and our awareness has secured a major contract within the NHS to deliver a number of training courses within the organisation including the Child Protection Level 3 for Practitioners.
