Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at practitioners who completed the full Level 5 Safeguarding Adults for Managers Accredited Programme, over three years ago, and now require an update.

The Level 5 Safeguarding Adults for Managers Accredited Programme is valid for three years, and after this period, practitioners who completed the course must undertake an update.

Why should I complete this course?

There have been significant changes to practice over the past two years. New ways of working have fundamentally challenged safeguarding practice, demanding from practitioners the ability to think creatively and utilise technology in new ways to work proactively.

In a rapidly changing environment where multiple and dynamic risks present, practitioners must be able to act promptly drawing confidently on both relevant legislation and case law.

What is covered in this course?

Practitioners will get the opportunity to consider and apply new case law to their own practice. They will learn about updates in legislation such as changes to the MCA (Mental Capacity Act) Code of Practice and implementation of the LPS (Liberty Protection Safeguards).

Practitioners will explore pro-active strategies in relation to reducing restrictive practices and will also get the opportunity to learn about how Root Cause Analysis can aid in the analysis of incidents where unexpected or avoidable injury has resulted in harm.

Course Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the key themes from recent Safeguarding Adults Reviews and how learning can be applied to own practice.
  • Give examples of workforce development strategies that enable staff to work in pro-active ways.

Level 5 Safeguarding Adults for Managers Accredited Course

Please scroll down to locate the dates/times and registration links for this programme.

Having a strong safeguarding strategy should be at the heart of all social care practice. However, many services fail to deliver a preventative approach to safeguarding and instead have a disproportionate approach to protection, are predominately reactive and fail to learn from mistakes. Systematically applying the 6 key principles of safeguarding can help cultivate a reflective service that learns and develops from its errors and near misses.

This course will prepare managers to have a strategic view of safeguarding in their own service. It will help them to determine the links between strength-based approaches, positive risk taking and Making Safeguarding Personal. It will help managers to understand the broader role of risk assessments as well as how to adopt creative approaches to fostering a shared vision and competency in their own teams. It will encourage managers to focus on quality of life, working preventatively, understanding proportionality and fostering stronger partnerships that will strengthen their safeguarding service.

Through group discussion and assessed work, the Level 5 Safeguarding Adults for Managers Accredited Course candidates will develop a range of safeguarding strategies and a prevention plan.

This course is accredited with the Advantage Accreditation Body to a Level 5. The course is mapped to the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care. Candidates must successfully complete the course assessment in order to pass the course.

The live training element of the course is delivered over four half-days and learners should arrange to attend all the live training sessions.
