Sefton Adults Safeguarding Training
This page has links to safeguarding adult training offered by a range of partners across Sefton.
The Merseyside Safeguarding Board is contracted with the Virtual College to provide 40+ online safeguarding e-learning courses. The Board is currently offering free access to all the courses for members of the adults workforce. We are likely to charge a nominal fee for future access due to the high cost of the contract.
To take advantage of the e-learning courses partner organisations must register their staff with Virtual College. Details of how to do this are below.
Courses currently available include:
- An introduction to Forced Marriage, Spirit Possession and Honour Based Violence
- Awareness of Domestic Violence and Abuse
- Trafficking, Exploitation and Modern Slavery
- Wellbeing in Sexual Health
- Collaborative Working
- Communication in Health and Social Care
- Parental Mental Health
- Risk Taking Behaviour
- Safer Recruitment
- Safer Working Practices
- Understanding Pathways to Extremism
The full programme of courses can be seen on the Virtual College e-learning system. New courses are added throughout the year.
To register your staff to be able to access the full e-learning package each organisation must complete the relevant spreadsheet from the list below and add employees names and email addresses. It is very important that details are entered correctly and on the right spreadsheet – this is so we can run accurate reports on take up and usage.
A detailed registration guide can be downloaded here:
Once you have downloaded the correct spreadsheet please complete the requested information – at least first name, surname and email address – and email the completed spreadsheet securely to [email protected]. We will ad the information to the Virtual College system and staff members will be emailed individually by Virtual College with details of how to log in.
The registration spreadsheets are below. If there isn’t a spreadsheet for your agency/sector or you are unsure which is the right one to use please email us: [email protected] for assistance.
Once registered all ongoing support is provided by Virtual College through the system.
