Course structure

Terminology and course structure explained

All our courses are broken down into units, lessons, topics and quizzes, all of which allow participants to go through each step in stages, and to enable better collaboration with fellow participants.

  1. Each course…. A course breaks down into several units covering one subject area.
  2. Units Each unit consisting of several lessons which go into different aspects of the course.
  3. Lesson Each lesson consist of several topics (modules)…
  4. Topics Topics consist out of an introduction to the subject, an investigation session comprising reading/video, followed by one or two interactive sessions where participants can engage with each other, as well as with their facilitators.
  5. Quiz Each unit ends with a quiz to help ensure you clearly understand the subject area that has been covered. You may want to revisit elements if there was something you didn’t quite understand, or ask your facilitator questions. 
  6. Final quiz The course ends with a final quiz, and on successful completion you will be offered a Certificate of Achievement. This can be your starting point in developing your career in child safeguarding.

Set times: Collaborative topics will open for participation at set times. This is to bring as many of our global course participants to together, and create a more powerful and engaging learning experience. If you miss the live event, depending on the type of activity, you may still be able to add your voice to the subject and/or see what others have contributed (as for example in forum discussions).

Languages: All courses will be held in English, so that participants can all understand each other, with Spanish language courses becoming available shortly too. If your organisation has specific language requirements, please do get in touch with our team to discuss options.

Certification: On completion of a course participants will receive a Certificate of Achievement to acknowledge that all units of the course were completed.
