Your Ofsted Gift: Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences – Level 2

On behalf of Preston College, we would like to thank you personally for your contribution to our ‘Good’ Ofsted outcome and offer you an opportunity to further develop your skills and knowledge, by adding Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (Level 2) to your current studies – free of charge.  


This is a knowledge based qualification that will develop your understanding of adverse childhood experiences and the techniques for preventing and addressing adverse experiences in practice, either in your current or future role. Topics of exploration will include the holistic development and different perspectives of childhood of young people from 0-18 years old. It will cover the indicators and situations that impact on negative childhood experiences and the role of practitioners in supporting young people impacted by adverse childhood experiences. It provides insight into health, development, education and wellbeing and the significance of attachment relationships. You will also explore Strategies that will improve the outcome of those affected, including the resilience framework.

As part of the programme, you will focus your studies on three core units:

  • Exploring childhood and family structures
  • Introduction to adverse childhood experiences
  • Strategies to improve outcomes for children affected by adverse childhood experiences


You will be taught via interactive sessions and will be required to participate in task assessments during delivery. You will be required to complete workbooks for your final submission.
