This online course will explore the roles and responsibilities of managers in terms of safeguarding adults at risk. We’ll look at the key changes within safeguarding as part of the Care Act. You’ll be encouraged to identify where the challenges are, and to seek solutions towards implementation in practice. We’ll cover best practice, the expectations of regulators, and the lessons we learned from our safeguarding adults reviews.
This course is for people with a safeguarding responsibility, or looking to develop for a safeguarding role. It’s also suitable for people looking for personal professional development.
