About the Course

Training with Hart’s Safeguarding Adults (unregulated, level 2 standard) course looks at safeguarding and the protection of vulnerable adults. It breaks down who is vulnerable and why. It explores the possible indicators of abuse to ensure that staff feel assured in their ability to spot them. This course will walk staff through their legal obligation if they suspect abuse and who and how they can report it. This training is interactive and gives a wealth of opportunities for discussion and group work to ensure learning is taking place. We look at staff responsibilities in the event of disclosure and the language staff should use. This course ensures that staff feel confident and aware of their obligations as well as ensuring they have a strong understanding of safeguarding as a whole.
