Training


We are committed to the highest quality training. As a result of the Care Act 2014 the training programme is currently under review.

Training update for Covid19

We have temporarily suspended all face to face training. Courses will be cancelled and will be notify you if you had booked a place. In order to offer some training to those who require it over the next few weeks/months, we have updated our workbook and assessment in line with the latest guidance.

The Safeguarding Adult Raising a Concern training workbook and assessment sheet are available to use within your organisations.

In addition, there is also managers' guidance providing the answers to the assessment questions and information on where to send completed and marked assessment sheets. This guidance is available by emailing safeguarding_training@durham.gov.uk.

Certificates will be sent to those who successfully complete the workbook.

Training Strategy

The strategy outlines our commitment to the delivery of training to agencies including health and social care, service providers and the wider voluntary sector. Our aim is to increase skills and knowledge across the wider workforce, fostering good practice for the safeguarding of adults.

Train the Trainer

We will be running a new intake of our Train the Trainer programme, which enables professionals to deliver the Safeguarding Adults training in their own workplace to their staff.  In addition to our normal programme for Train the Trainer, we are going to be expanding our range to include other courses and levels.  To learn more, please see below;

Mappa elearning

This elearning tool should be used for staff development and training purposes. It will support people who attend Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) and anyone who works with violent or sexual offenders to raise individual awareness of MAPPA, practice guidance and policy. It aims to help professionals to consider the appropriateness of MAPPA in assisting the management of those risks posed by an individual to the public, known adult, children, staff and prisoners.

PREVENT training

In addition to our regional training package for Safeguarding Adults, we have produced a comprehensive elearning course that focuses on the 'Prevent Strategy'. This course aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It will help you to respond appropriately if you become concerned about a vulnerable individual - whether they are a member of the public, customer or colleague.
