This is a level 2 course under the Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board Competency Framework, intended for all staff who may be required to undertake a statutory adult safeguarding enquiry under section 42 of the Care Act 2014. This would include social workers and staff in other partner agencies who the local authority may cause to make an enquiry on its behalf, because they are best placed to do this. Please note that there are aspects of this program that will explore aspects of the topic specific to the local authority social work role. However the majority of this 2 day course will be applicable to all who undertake adult safeguarding enquiries.
