Safeguarding Adults Multi-Agency Learning & Workforce Development Strategy

The Safeguarding Adults Board has published its learning and workforce development strategy.  The strategy sets out local expectations regarding safeguarding and Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) training.  Its aim is to help ensure staff get the skills they need to do their job.  It seeks to achieve that by enabling employing organisations to identify staff training needs, plan to meet those needs, and assess whether or not the identified training needs have been met.  You can find out lots more using this link: Safeguarding Adults Board Multi-Agency Learning & Workforce Development Strategy 2023 – 2026 (PDF, 537 KB)
