NSAB Learning and Development Programme 2017/18

About NSAB training

Each agency is responsible for ensuring that staff are appropriately trained to enable them to carry out their duties. Whilst single agency training is important in safeguarding adults and responding to their welfare, no one agency can do this effectively without working in partnership with other agencies.

Inter-agency training provided by the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) is an excellent way to enable practitioners to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults at risk in their work.

Our overall aim is to make the NSAB courses and events accessible to all practitioners who work with adults at risk in Nottinghamshire

Training mission statement

We aim to deliver high quality, up-to-date safeguarding training that will enable participants to keep safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults at the centre of their work.

All inter-agency programmes will take into account the individual rights of both participants, and the adults served with regards to race, culture, gender, experience of disability, language, sexuality and sexual orientation.

Competency Framework and Learning Pathway

NSAB’s learning pathway incorporates national standards; supports local strategic aims and promotes the need for cultural change for agencies who support adults at risk. The learning opportunities outlined, are based upon minimum standards and what outcomes specific groups of staff should be capable of achieving. The levels of competence those groups of staff should hold remains the responsibility of each organisation to measure with their own performance management processes. The competency framework and learning pathway profiles four groups of staff which may have different levels of responsibility to safeguard people

Competency Framework and Learning Pathway [PDF].

You can use this document:

  • for staff, to provide clear, relevant and proportionate learning and development opportunities
  • for management and senior staff: to measure competencies and identify gaps in knowledge/ training
  • to provide assurance to your organisation and commissioners of your service that your staff have attained relevant competencies.
