Multi-agency safeguarding adults training

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we've developed a programme of virtual training sessions for staff from statutory partner agencies. While face-to-face training is not possible, facilitated online training sessions have been designed, enabling delegates to take part through a video conferencing platform, which will make sure that training is interactive, practical and relevant to practice.

The Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board (KMSAB) commissions multi-agency safeguarding adults training for staff from the statutory sector.

About the training workshops

The training has been developed as part of an integrated programme of development for staff and each partner agency provides its own introductory safeguarding adults training, as well as other associated learning. As safeguarding is integral to all work, it is important that participants who attend the courses have the agreement and support of their line manager.

Those wishing to book a place should ensure the training is appropriate for their role and contact their agency’s lead for learning and development in the first instance.

Due to funding restrictions, KMSAB training is only available to staff from partner agencies which contribute financially to the Board. There is no charge for staff from the statutory partner agencies to undertake this training, although the Board does levy a fee for late cancellation or non-attendance, which is non-discretionary.

Our workshops

We have been offering online training sessions since September 2020, which enable delegates to participate through a video conferencing platform.

The workshops are delivered as either one 3 hour session (for half day courses), or two 3 hour sessions (for whole day courses), with built in breaks as required.

Course workbooks will be emailed in advance, along with detailed instructions for participants, including any preparation which may be required.
