Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
This Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Online Course is designed to provide an essential introduction for anyone who is new to the subject and act as a refresher for those who already work with vulnerable people in a paid or voluntary capacity.
Most adults live normal happy lives. However, for a number of unfortunate people, abuse is a reality and the effects can lead to great unhappiness and sometimes, tragedy.
In simple terms, abuse to adults exists and if you suspect that a person is abusing or being abused, your responsibility is to prevent it. Also, if you are working with vulnerable adults, you have a legal duty of care to intervene and this is fully supported by legislation. It is not enough to claim ignorance of the abuse or fail to assist.
This programme is broken down into four modules:
1. Understanding the Basics
2. Recognising Adult Abuse
3. Reporting Abuse
4. Good Practice
This course aims to help you by developing your understanding of:
  • who may be vulnerable
  • what adult abuse is and its effects
  • who abuses and why
  • how to respond if someone tells you that they have been abused
  • why it is so important to act on your suspicions or a disclosure
  • how to record your concerns
  • the reporting process
  • good practice guidelines, along with organisational and individual responsibilities in the form of a personal code of conduct.
After you have completed the programme, we hope to have given you sufficient knowledge and confidence to take action to protect a vulnerable adult, should the need arise.
How it works
Beginning with Module 1, read through each module carefully, and at your own pace, ensuring that you have understood and absorbed its content. On completing a module, you will attempt to answer the corresponding questionnaire for that module.


Each questionnaire is presented in a multiple-choice format; simply select the answer you believe is correct and click on the ‘Next’ button to continue onto the next question.

Your score for each questionnaire appears as soon as you have completed the last question. You need to achieve an overall pass rate of 70% to obtain a certificate of completion.

You have 1 attempt to pass each questionnaire; if you fail to reach an overall pass rate of 70% you will need to repeat the programme again (at an extra cost to you) in order to receive your course certificate.

To complete the programme, you must work through all the modules (ie open each page), as well as attain the pass criteria for that programme. You may exit the programme and return later, using the 'bookmark & exit' button, when you log back in the programme you click 'resume' and you will automatically be returned to the place you left off.

On completion / Passing of the programme, you will be able to return to your account and download and then print your course certificate automatically you will also be sent an email confirming your pass or failure status, along with appropriate instructions as to what to do next.

It is estimated that this module will take approximately one to two hours to complete (depending on learning speed). As an e-learning module you can complete this training in convenient stages and revisit whenever you wish.

At the end The system will record your progress throughout. Upon completion and passing with an overall pass rate of 70% you will be able to access your results and download a course certificate which is valid for 3 years.
