Course description

Delegates must attend both sessions to complete the course - please add both dates into your calendar.


A two session course to enable managers in the public, voluntary, private and independent sector to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities effectively, and to work with their partners in the statutory sector to achieve, wherever possible, the outcomes service users wish to achieve for themselves.

Who should attend?
Anyone who works in a managerial or senior capacity in a health or social care provider setting (e.g. residential homes, day centres, supported living, domiciliary care etc.). Participants should already have a good understanding of the basics of Safeguarding Adults as this is not an awareness session.

This course is a virtual course run via Zoom or Teams - joining instructions will be sent to via diary invite a week before the course date.

Please note, this course will have regular breaks for participants so please ensure you take yourself away from the screen. The course is aimed to be interactive

Training objectives

What can I expect?
The sessions are interactive. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, make comments and bring up their own issues. A lot of different methods including quizzes, case studies, video clips and small group work as well as direct teaching are used.
