Adult Safeguarding Training and Development

The Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board does not currently provide multi-agency training itself, but does aim to ensure that adult safeguarding practice across the Bristol workforce is consistent and effective by identifying learning and development needs and setting training standards. This is achieved through the work of the Learning and Development sub group.

Partners of the BSAB have individually provided a Safeguarding Adults training offer for the Bristol workforce.

Training Standards

The LDSG has been working with other Local SABs in the region to develop a Safeguarding Adults Training Standards document. This is a learning pathway which 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 Safeguarding Adults Training Standards is currently in the final stages of development and will be published here once complete.

BSAB inter-agency training

The Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board is working with the Bristol Safeguarding Children Board to develop inter-agency training courses available for professionals who work with adults with care and support needs. This should be available in Spring 2018, and further information will be available in due course.
