The core principles for protecting children are similar across the four countries which make up the United Kingdom - England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Island. To that end, Spectrum courses are appropriate for all parts of the UK. However as legislation evolves in each country, you should check on appropriate websites for latest information to make sure that information is current and correct.
It might be helpful to have a pen and paper to jot notes as you learn. Access to a printer will be useful to be able to print off downloadable resources to have with you on journeys. It is important to take the course in a quiet and comfortable setting.
Upon passing the course your will receive a Certificate of Achievement. Your certificate will have a unique reference number and an QF code which can be input or scanned by your employer/school/local authority to check that see that you have passed.
Once purchased you have a period of 90 days to attempt the course as many times as you like. If you cannot pass the course within the 90 days then you or your employer will be required to re-purchase the course.
