Return to list

What is the course about?

In 2013, a total of 176,000 safeguarding alerts were reported to councils with adult social services responsibilities. One third of these cases involved physical abuse and neglect, making this the most common cause of safeguarding alerts. Have you ever thought about how you could help protect innocent and vulnerable people who might be sufering from abuse, harm or neglect within the adult health and social care industry? This qualification will provide you with a thorough understanding of the importance of dignity and safeguarding, which could help reduce these shocking statistics. 

What will be studied?

This course is split into four manageable units, covering topics such as:

  • Unit one: Understanding safeguarding in adult health and social care
  • Unit two: Principles of dignity in adult health and social care practices
  • Unit three: Understanding duty of care in adult health and social care
  • Unit four: Understanding dilemmas and public concerns in adult health and social care.
