Bolton Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB) has purchased three e-learning training packages on behalf of all its members. The courses are free and available for all levels of staff who work for Bolton Council including external organisations:

The package explains and helps improve understanding of:

  • safeguarding adults, aimed particularly at new staff or as a refresher
  • which adults are at risk
  • what different forms of abuse are
  • where abuse may occur and who may be the abuser
  • when and how to record and report abuse
  • practice and procedures all staff must follow
  • vulnerability and responding to concerns

The e-learning package is simple to follow use a combination of text, images, quizzes and case studies. It will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete each course but it is flexible and you can re-visit the training at your convenience at the same place you exited.

For each package you have to achieve 15/20 in the final assessment to be able to print off a certificate. The other assessments within the package do not count towards your final score and are there to facilitate your learning not to test you.
