Safeguarding Adults Level 1
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.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
