Do I need Level 2 training? Level 2 safeguarding is legally required by all staff who have regular contact with patients, their families or carers, or the public.
In a joint statement from the BDA/BSPD it was said “the majority of dentists and dental care professionals will require level 2’.
The level 2 legal requirements can be met by completing a 4 hour course every 2 years.
Our course gives you a CPD certificate for 4 hours (2 hours adults and 2 hours children) which will be valid for 2 years.
This half day Level 2 safeguarding course, will provide an awareness of child protection and safeguarding for young people and vulnerable adults, including risk factors that may lead to abuse and indicators of abuse.
It will teach you how to respond to those who have been abused, reporting process, record keeping and awareness of the legislation pertaining to safeguarding adults children and young people.
