What is safeguarding training?

Anyone can be a victim of abuse. Sadly it happens to people from all walks of life from all over the world. Safeguarding means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from harm, neglect or abuse. Safeguarding practices exist to protect vulnerable adults and children in society. Safeguarding training protects both the people at risk and the employee who notices the signs, as they will be equipped to know what to do in those circumstances.

What does our Safeguarding series cover?

  • Understanding the challenges and needs of vulnerable populations
  • Identifying various forms of abuse
  • Safeguarding prevention strategies for children and adults at risk
  • Intervention strategies for suspected harm
  • Managing radicalism and extremism
  • Prevent: Counter-terrorism strategy

Advanced safeguarding training for adult and child care

For more advanced safeguarding training, we have individual courses which focus on safeguarding adults and safeguarding children.

Our safeguarding adults training explores the key principles, practice and legislation relating to adult safeguarding including when to report concerns to the local authorities. It is particularly useful for people whose roles involve meeting ‘at risk’ adults, such as dealing with the public, but it is important for all workers to be aware of this topic.

The importance of Safeguarding

Identifying the signs and symptoms of abuse is a critical part of the safeguarding process. It’s essential to know what to do if you suspect abuse and to act quickly. The course gives advice on how to respond if you suspect or are told abuse is occurring.

Everyone has a responsibility for reporting abuse and sharing information with other individuals and organisations to safeguard adults at risk. This Safeguarding eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
