After the Foundation Connected Kids ™ course you will receive a certificate of attendance. There is no assessment with this stage so it isn’t classified as a professional course (eg mainly applies to parents/carers wishing to teach family).

*PVG/criminal record checks (or equivalent); we require a copy of a basic disclosure check (or equivalent in your country) to confirm that you have a clear history with no criminal charges at the time your disclosure certificate was issued (certificate date must be valid within 18 months of the Connected Kids training).
