Each agency is responsible for ensuring that staff are appropriately trained to enable them to carry out their duties.
Single agency training is important in safeguarding adults and responding to instances of abuse and neglect, but no one agency can do this effectively without working in partnership with others.
Inter-agency training provided by the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) is an excellent way to enable practitioners to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults at risk in their work.
We aim to deliver high quality, up-to-date safeguarding training, making NSAB courses and events accessible to all practitioners who work with adults at risk in Nottinghamshire.
All inter-agency programmes will consider the individual rights of both participants, and the adults served with regards to:
- experience of disability
- language, sexuality
- sexual orientation.
NSAB’s learning pathway incorporates national standards; supports local strategic aims and promotes the need for cultural change for agencies who support adults at risk. The learning opportunities outlined, are based upon minimum standards and what outcomes specific groups of staff should be capable of achieving. The levels of competence those groups of staff should hold remains the responsibility of each organisation to measure with their own performance management processes. The competency framework and learning pathway profiles four groups of staff which may have different levels of responsibility to safeguard people
