LEVEL 1

This is a general course for those who would be infrequent with their contact with children and young people, but may become aware of possible abuse or neglect, i.e. Receptionists, Librarians etc. They should complete their own agency's level 1 training or the Level 1 MOD safeguarding training which can be accessed on the Defence Learning Environment site housed on the Defence Gateway (www.defencegateway.mod.uk). Refresher training is advised as a minimum once every 3 years. Please be aware that SSAFA cannot advise of the training required for individuals. This is for each agency to decide within their own internal policies and procedures.
