What you'll learn on this course

The office of the public guardian, the UK’s source for safeguarding policy, has strict guidelines and protocols for us to follow when providing evidence about protecting vulnerable people. Our training course aims at delivering safeguarding designed to transition straight into any care setting

After training, you will:

  1. Know the laws that apply to safeguarding and key people involved
  2. Identify those most at risk of abuse
  3. Know the different categories of abuse and how they affect vulnerable people
  4. Highlight reporting processes and introduce measures to prevent harm

We make sure that our courses adhere to the current teaching regulations. We do this by thoroughly checking our course content to make sure it contains the information required to reward our trainees with an accredited certificate after the training sessions are completed.

Bespoke training sessions

Every training course we deliver has been specifically customised to apply to your workplace whilst also including vital safety information. We never teach the exact same training session twice, as we believe there is always something to be gained from making slight adaptations to our courses in order to make them more suited for our clients needs.
