Level 1: Introduction to Adult Safeguarding
This level is a basic awareness course for adult safeguarding. It should be completed by all staff that work for an organisation where there is contact with adults with care and support needs.
Staff who do not work directly with adults with care and support needs (e.g. reception staff, catering staff, facilities staff, etc) are generally not expected by the Safeguarding Board to complete any further safeguarding adults training. However, please refer to your organisation's training policy as they may have a greater expectation.
Staff who work directly with adults with care and support needs should go on to attend either the Level 2 (Awareness) or Level 3 (Caseworker) courses after completing this e-learning (or in-house equivalent).
