Course Description

This online training course explains your safeguarding responsibilities surrounding vulnerable adults in the workplace. You will cover how to spot the signs and symptoms of abuse and the correct way to report any safeguarding concerns or suspected abuse you may have. This training is suitable for all levels of staff working in any role where they may encounter vulnerable adults.

It is a statutory requirement for anyone who works with vulnerable adults to have up-to-date knowledge of safeguarding policies, legislation and guidance so they can proactively focus on keeping them safe from harm and maintain the ability to act on any concerns about their safety and welfare.

This course comprises twenty modules, including an overview of safeguarding, definitions of specific terms and jargon, multi-agency working, and types of abuse and how to recognise them. We will also guide the learners through relevant serious case reviews and legislation to help them understand how safeguarding has developed and how it applies to their role.

This course also covers key topics such as FGM, trafficking, and safer recruitment to ensure learners have a well-rounded understanding of key safeguarding topics and are equipped with the knowledge need to spot potential abuse in a wide range of forms.

As we recognise that roles and responsibilities differ, the information in the course regarding how to deal with abuse is tailored to the needs of a Level 1 learner. We have used immersive real-world scenarios to bring the responsibilities to life, enabling the learners to apply the techniques and learning in their workplace.
