Train the Trainer Safeguarding Awareness - Dereham

The aim of the session is to train staff to deliver safeguarding awareness training to staff and volunteers in their own organisation. Participants will be provided with a set of training materials that they can use back in the workplace including: handouts, exercises, quizzes, case studies, PowerPoint presentations and a link to a safeguarding awareness film. The pack contents cover all the materials for a half day or full day awareness session and a ninety-minute update session.

Learning outcomes:

  • Describe what is meant by abuse and neglect and be able to recognise the indicators of abuse
  • Describe your organisation’s procedures for safeguarding adults and your role within them
  • Recognise your duty of care to adults at risk
  • Describe how to promote the adult at risk’s choice and control and understand the Making Safeguarding Personal agenda

  • Identify how to inform the appropriate person in your organisation of a safeguarding adults concern
  • Describe how and where to record concerns about abuse and neglect

These reflect level one of the Bournemouth competencies for safeguarding adults which had been adopted by the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board.

What will I be able to do as a result of attending the training for trainers?

  • Deliver quality, interactive safeguarding adults awareness training to your own staff group in an engaging way, for either a half day or full day session
  • Have participated in the group exercises and considered how to best deliver them to meet the needs of your staff and/or volunteers
