Regional Training Package

As part of the regional harmonisation of safeguarding training we have produced a Regional Training Package which is applicable for everyone who works with adults at risk.

The course uses the nationally recognised resources available from the Social Care Institute for Excellence and ties it in with the procedural tools used by your own local authority to provide training which really helps to clarify the requirements of safeguarding for adults at risk.


PREVENT Training

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.
