Working together to make Safeguarding personal

Although it may not be at the forefront of our minds all the time, each and every one of us has a responsibility to work together to safeguard those at risk – at home, in the workplace or out in society. This is even more prevalent for those working in Health, Social Care and the Public Sector.

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding refers to the process of protecting children and at-risk adults to provide safe and effective care. There are six principles for effective safeguarding: empowerment, prevention, proportionality, protection, partnership, and accountability. 

At Learning Pool, we believe the principle of empowerment is one of the fundamentals of safeguarding a person at risk. And as Lord Justice Mundy captured perfectly, “What good is making someone safer if it merely makes them miserable?” [2010].

How can we help with Safeguarding?

Maintaining our focus on protecting the dignity and empowerment of those in need of safeguarding, we’re pleased to announce the completion of our much anticipated Safeguarding Suite. 

This new suite is an all-encompassing set of modules that will aid healthcare workers and also those who may be in contact with children or at-risk adults.

This elearning goes beyond simply telling learning about the legislation and frameworks associated with safeguarding. It aims to instil them with confidence to tackle safeguarding situations and equip them with the practical tools to ensure each person is given the person-centered approach they deserve. 

In designing the suite, we concentrated on case studies that reflect realistic situations learners may find themselves in. In doing this, we believe learners will gain practical knowledge and relevant skills they’ll need for on-the-job learning.  

The Safeguarding Suite includes 17 modules – the core modules (Levels 1-3) are mapped to their relevant frameworks with the remaining modules providing additional and specific content related to other aspects of safeguarding.
