All face-to-face SAB training is currently postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however we are developing some free learning resources and will share them here when they are ready.

The Isle of Wight Safeguarding Adults Board (IOWSAB) offers a range of fully funded courses throughout the year, as well as a range of free e-learning. All of courses are free to professionals from any agency.

IOWSAB courses are there to complement your own internal safeguarding training, not replace it. Our courses are around specific themes or policies – they are not general safeguarding courses. Before attending any IOWSAB training, there is an expectation you will have completed adult safeguarding training either within your own agency, or via IOW Council Learning and Development. There is also an expectation that you have read, or at least are aware of, the range of IOWSAB policies and guidance on the ‘information for professionals’ tab. Before booking on a course, please ensure that you have read the guidance about any pre-reading and relevance of the course to your role.

Course Attendance Fees:

These training courses and events are free and fully funded by the LSAB and are offered to their partner agencies. In the case of non-attendance or cancellation within 48 HOURS of an event a fee of £50 per training day per person will be incurred. This fee will be waived ONLY if a suitable delegate is sent instead. Should a candidate be unable to attend a course, or a suitable candidate cannot be found, please cancel the ticket via Eventbrite. 

At each event there will be a register, it is the responsibility of attendees to sign the register as a record of their attendance.
