Who is this learning for?

This Level 2 course is for multi-agency operational staff and managers working within East Lothian and Midlothian who are in regular contact or carry out direct work with vulnerable adults and who have a requirement to learn more about Adult Protection for their role. This course is suitable for staff who have not previously completed this training as it is not refresher training. It is not appropriate for social workers in adult services who have Council Officer duties under the Adult Support and Protection Act.

Are there any pre-requisites for attending this course?

How will the training be delivered?

This training will take place on a virtual basis, using Microsoft Teams, over two half days.
