We are committed to the highest quality training. As a result of the Care Act 2014 the training programme is currently under review.
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.
The brochure lists the free training we produce on behalf of the Safeguarding Adult Board. You can book a place on one of our training courses using out online course booking system:
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.
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.
