Managers Safeguarding Level 5 Accredited Course
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 Managers Safeguarding Level 5 course delegates will develop a range of safeguarding strategies and a prevention plan.
This course is accredited with Advantage Accreditation Body to a Level 5. Candidates must complete all assessed work to pass the course. The course is delivered over four days and learners must attend all sessions.
