Safeguarding for Designated Lead Officers

Course Overview



The Designated Safeguarding Officer is the first point of contact for staff members and other stakeholders of the organisation, so it is essential that their knowledge of Safeguarding procedures is in-depth and up-to-date.
Central Training's Safeguarding for Lead Officers course will help delegates to understand what the role involves and to understand the safeguarding process in more detail. The course uses different exercises and materials to help Lead Officers to review and develop the Safeguarding procedures within their organisation and ensure that all staff members understand their responsibilities towards safeguarding

This course will consider the requirements of the Care Act 2014, which puts adult safeguarding on a legal footing and updates the scope of adult safeguarding, the Pan London Guidelines and Making Safeguarding Personal. Additionally, it will consider the requirements of the London Safeguarding Children Board.

It will develop the knowledge required by lead officers to use the Mental Capacity Act appropriately to identify, address and prevent abuse.
