Course content

Specialist practice with adults is facing a challenging period of transformation in relation to implementing new law such as the Care Act 2014, managing the demands of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and reacting to organisational changes. It is essential that practitioners have opportunities to develop their learning and education to enhance their skills and knowledge. This course will enable practitioners to develop a broad understanding and application of knowledge related to adult social care practice, including critical awareness of current issues and new evidence-based practice research. There will be learning opportunities to generate new approaches to safeguarding policy and practice in work with adults at risk; and learning opportunities to develop and to enhance decision-making skills in complex safeguarding situations involving adults at risk.

This award is a specific pathway for practitioners in social work and social care and aims to build on their professional experience. Practitioners will be able to evidence their learning in each module in order to meet relevant CPD standards or HCPC requirements for renewing their registration.
