When you log into your profile, you’ll see that there are three different levels of both safeguarding courses you can upload your certificates to:
Safeguarding Children (SGC):
- Safeguarding Children Level 3 is acceptable in SGC Level 1 and Level 2 fields
- Safeguarding Children Level 3 is a mandatory requirement for GPs
Safeguarding Adults (SGA):
- Safeguarding Adults Level 3 is acceptable in SGA Level 1 and Level 2 fields
Where possible the document uploaded must be a certificate stating your name, the date of completion and show the relevant level:
If you cannot provide a certificate and only a screenshot of your results (e.g. this has been done through ESR), please ensure the screenshot shows your name and date of completion or expiry.
Please note that if a practice has set Safeguarding Children Level 3 as a governance blocker, you will need to upload a Level 3 certificate in the correct field.
Similarly, if a practice has set Safeguarding Adults Level 2 as a governance blocker, you will need to upload a Level 2 or 3 certificate in that field. Or Safeguarding Adults Level 3, you need to upload a Level 3 certificate into that field.
This will be stated when you try to apply for a session, and you may not need to upload all 3 certificates to be able to apply for a session at a practice that has set these courses as mandatory requirements.
Safeguarding Children and Adult certificates are valid for 3 years from issue date unless otherwise stated.
If it doesn't state the specific Safeguarding course and/or level, we will need to official documentation that proves the course was completed. We will accept a letter or email confirmation from the organisation merged alongside the course certificate.
