Enrolment for level 3 safeguarding adults free online course is live

Posted on: December 20th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

The first run of the level 3 safeguarding adults free online course starts on Monday 27 January 2020.

The course lasts for three weeks with weekly study time of one hour.

Health and care staff can enrol now at https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/level-3-safeguarding-adults/1.

The online course contributes towards the achievement of level 3 safeguarding competencies, as set out in Safeguarding for Adults: Roles and Competencies.

Topics covered include:

* Taking part in, and contributing to, wider multi-disciplinary safeguarding meetings
* The challenges of complex safeguarding concerns
* How communication, information sharing and confidentiality contribute to effective safeguarding
* Professional and contemporaneous safeguarding documentation
* Reflective practice and the role of supervision in safeguarding

Developed in partnership with the Safeguarding Adults National Network, this online course is one of a set of national resources for level 3 and 4 safeguarding adults training that HEE is making freely available to all health and care staff.

Accompanying the level 3 online course, will be a facilitator guide to run complementary face to face training in your organisation. This will be made available on the e-LfH Hub from the end of January 2020.

For level 4 safeguarding adults, staff will be able to access a gap analysis tool to discover relevant resources based on their current knowledge and skills, log their work-based learning and have access to a programme of live webinars on ‘hot topics’ running throughout 2020.

Blended learning for safeguarding adults levels 3 and 4

Posted on: July 23rd, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Earlier this year, Health Education England (HEE) brought together over 50 safeguarding professionals to co-produce learning designs for levels 3 and 4 safeguarding adults training. The training is set out in the ‘Safeguarding for Adults: Roles and Competencies’, the new national Intercollegiate Document, which defines the safeguarding knowledge, skills and attitudes required by staff working in all health and care settings.

Work is now underway to produce national resources for levels 3 and 4 safeguarding adults training. These will be launched in January 2020.

Level 3 will comprise a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) – including online discussion, short video clips, links to reading material and online simulation using 360° immersive video. The MOOC will be accompanied by a workshop toolkit comprising a guide to run face to face sessions, video clips and more.

The solution for level 4 will be a set of tools that staff can use to aid the discovery of relevant resources based on their current knowledge and skills, log their work-based learning and have access to a programme of live webinars on ‘hot topics’ across the country.
