Combined child protection and vulnerable adult training courses

We are pleased to annouce the release of our combined child protection/adult safeguarding training courses.  There are quite a few areas where staff need to receive both child protection and vulnerable adult safeguarding training, for example dentists, hospital staff etc.  Traditionally this has required taking two separate courses, with the added costs of both time and money.

Although unique in their own way, child protection and adult safeguarding has a lot in common and therefore by combing the training into one eLearning course, a learner can quickly get up to speed on both topics.

There are two courses available to take:

Introduction To Adult/Child Protection – Level 1. A general safeguarding course specifically designed for anyone who comes into contact with children and adults at risk. It covers legislation and guidance, the different types of abuse, the range of indicators of abuse and neglect, together with your responsibilities with regard to reporting concerns.

Leading On Adult/Child Protection – Level 2. An online safeguarding course specifically developed for the nominated safeguarding lead and deputy within an organisation, who have already completed a Level 1 course. It is also suitable for anyone wishing to cover the topic in more depth. It covers safeguarding policies and procedures, identifying concerns, handling allegations and complaints and how and when to make referrals.
