It is a statutory requirement for anyone who works with vulnerable adults to have up-to-date knowledge of safeguarding policies, legislation and guidance. This knowledge will help learners to proactively focus on keeping them safe from harm and maintain the ability to act on any concerns about their safety and welfare.
This course covers the information for Level 3 Safeguarding Adults. It introduces safeguarding as a topic, covering jargon, whistleblowing, multi-agency working and best practice, as well as how to identify the signs and symptoms of abuse, what to do if someone discloses information and what you should do if you suspect a vulnerable adult is being abused.
The content also covers national and local context, as well as focusing on your role and what you can do to recognise and reduce the likelihood of abuse.
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 3 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.
