The aim of the Derby Safeguarding Adults Board Learning and Development Prospectus is to provide the building blocks of knowledge which equip and underpin the working practices of all those involved in safeguarding adults who may be in vulnerable circumstances and at risk of abuse or neglect by others due to their situations and have care and support needs.
Safeguarding is everyone's business and by studying together we can make a positive impact on the lives of adults in Derby City. Derby Safeguarding Adults Board has implemented the National Competency Framework for Safeguarding Adults. The aim of the framework is to outline competencies within the workforce in which agencies can work with their staff to evidence that they are competent in Safeguarding Adults.
Each competency within the framework refers to a combination of skills, knowledge and experience expected of individual staff. The Framework is based on the idea that certain staff groups need different levels of competence in Safeguarding Adults. Each agency needs to identify which staff fit into which group but in the meantime we have highlighted the responsibilities of different staff groups which should enable you to see which training would be of most benefit to your role.
Training courses are very much the beginning of becoming competent and the key area is how you take your learning and implement this in practice and then evidence how this has enabled you to become competent in Safeguarding Adults
The Competence Framework looks to highlight how all the training courses link in with the Framework.

The impact of COVID-19 has created an extremely challenging time for safeguarding Adults Training. Derby Safeguarding Adults Board has identified a number of online training resources to respond to safeguarding training demands:
This resource can be used to increases existing members of staff, redeployed staff and volunteers knowledge and understanding on Safeguarding Adults topics such as:
Adult Social Care Workforce Learning and Development Team have co-ordinated and produced a resource document to assist providers across different health and social care settings to train staff to work with people to deliver care. This document will be added to and updated regularly as a supportive tool to be used during the current Coronavirus Pandemic, as we are unable to provide face to face and classroom based learning opportunities at the moment. It is not intended as a replacement for detailed quality training, but instead is an interim support tool to help facilitate and enable people to work safely.
If you need any further information, or advice about any aspect of these training topics, you can contact the team on 01332 641229 during office hours.
