SOVA/POVA - Protection of and Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults in Birmingham

Welcome to TECC's Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults Training 

TECC's 1 day Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults is designed for anyone who has contact with the public, including those working in the health and social care sectors, mental health, nursing and voluntary and community care sectors.

Our workshop in Birmingham covers:

  • Understand the various types of abuse and neglect
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect
  • Who is vulnerable
  • Legal framework
  • Standards and guidance
  • Safeguarding procedures
  • Understand the importance of accurate recording and reporting
  • Procedures to follow if you have a concern

The training is provided in a friendly, informative and supportive environment at our centre in
Erdington, Birmingham.

The training enables the delegate to explore ways vulnerable adults can stay safe by minimising the potential for abuse and neglect. By gaining a deeper level of understanding and knowledge of the types of abuse or neglect and procedures required to follow if a vulnerable adult is believed to be at risk of abuse or neglect.

Personal and professional safety and the legal and ethical code of conduct in relation to the protection of and safeguarding vulnerable adults is explored in detail enabling those working with or caring to feel confident and competent, taking every precaution to protect themselves and the adult in their care. The written activities and practical exercises provide consistent opportunities to promote confidence and competence, enabling the training to be evaluated and evidenced. Additional support in relation to policy and procedures can be provided upon request for companies and organisations.
