Multi-agency Learning & Development

Dudley Safeguarding Adults Board (DSAB) provide a wide range of learning & development opportunities for professionals who work with adults, their carers and families within Dudley.

Purpose of Learning & Development

Multi-agency training is integral to safeguarding adults, vulnerable adults and/or adults at risk in Dudley, offering opportunities to share and understand the roles and responsibilities of fellow professionals and volunteers who work to safeguard adults.

The purpose of multi-disciplinary training is to complement existing training currently being delivered within partner agencies (in terms of their single agency training) to ensure that our common goals (improved outcomes and safety for adults) are met.

To ensure the purpose is met, DSAB have developed a Training Strategy for 2018-19. You can find a copy here: Safeguarding Training Strategy 2018-19

There is a suggested Competency Framework for staff which will help to identify competencies required for staff in various roles. This is aligned to the staff levels contained within the Safeguarding Training Strategy (page 3) along with the Competence Framework for Safeguarding Adults (pdf) below.

DSAB has worked alongside Dudley Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB) to launch a joint board 'Event Booking Management System' which will host all the multi-agency learning & development training courses, dates, times and venues.
