Training

31/01/2018

Bracknell Forest and Windsor & Maidenhead Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) has joined with Slough SAB to create an East Berkshire Learning and Development Group.  This Multi-Agency Workforce Development Strategy sets out the training and workforce development strategy in relation to safeguarding adults in East Berkshire to ensure staff have the knowledge, skills and understanding to safeguard adults from abuse.

East Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Workforce Development Strategy 

In line with national guidance, organisations within East Berks generally offer different levels of training to correspond with job roles and accountabilities and the safeguarding adults process. Each training level has related competencies. Following attendance at training, attendees will be expected to demonstrate these competencies within their work role.

Safeguarding Adults Level One Training is essential training for all health and social care staff.

Free e-learning:

SAB encourages professionals who may come into contact with vulnerable adults at risk of being radicalised, to access the Home Office training on Prevent.

Female Genital Mutilation

The Home Office has made free Female Genital Mutilation e-learning and a resource pack available.

Modern Slavery

An e-learning course on Modern Slavery is available from NHS Health Education England. Please see Identifying and Supporting Victims of Modern Slavery.

Making Safeguarding Personal

Making Safeguarding Personal is at the heart of the work of the SAB and all safeguarding practice. It involves an outcome focussed, person centred approach to safeguarding adults.  It arose following feedback from people who had used safeguarding services which suggested that people felt driven by a process and felt out of control. It is a personalised approach that enables safeguarding to be done with, not to, people.
