Really thorough child safeguarding course, I learned lots. I can now apply this refresher training to my role in early years care.

Just appreciating on what I learnt from this course, it was well detailed and exciting as I was going through every topic , I managed to gain or acquire knowledge from what I was being taught during the course. Much appreciated.
