Virtual Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) Training

Event Type: Training
November 2020 and February 2021

This training is available to give participants an overall understanding of how staff should use their skills, knowledge and judgement to work with people to MSP.

Aim: To give participants an overall understanding of how staff should use their skills, knowledge and judgement to work with people to Make Safeguarding Personal and to improve and capture outcomes with them, rather than for them.

Target Group: Anyone working in a health and/or Social Care setting.

Learning outcomes: by the end of this session participants should:

  • Understand the key principles and issues of the Care Act 2014 in relation to Safeguarding Adults
  • Have explored how to implement a person centred social work approach which achieves the outcomes that people want.
  • Have explored the importance of developing supportive, reflective supervision and learning opportunities for social workers.
  • Have reviewed how and in what circumstances advocacy is made available.
  • Have explored how to re-design policies and procedures to make them person centred.
  • Understand the links between MSP and wider personalisation, engagement and prevention initiatives and strategies.
  • Appreciate the importance of having conversations with people about how we might respond in safeguarding situations in a way that enhances involvement, choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety.
  • Understand how MSP supports and empowers people at risk of harm to resolve the circumstances that put them at risk
  • Have understood what the six principles of safeguarding actually mean in practice – (empowerment, prevention, proportionality, protection, partnerships, accountability)
  • Appreciate the importance of involving carers appropriately in relation to safeguarding
  • Appreciate that Making Safeguarding Personal is about the views and wishes of the person, rather than simply following a “process”

Training methods used

All of our training sessions are intended to be as interactive as possible. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, make comments and bring up their own issues. We use lots of different methods including quizzes, case studies, video clips and small group work as well as direct teaching. We want participants to leave the session saying “that was really enjoyable – and it was directly relevant to my working life.”

Please Note: The learning outcomes are based on a full day course, however the course is a half day so all learning outcomes might not be met.

Please note: You must have downloaded the Zoom App prior to the training and check that your work computer/laptop allows them to do this, as we are aware that some organisations IT blocks the downloading of Zoom. Nearer the time of the training you will receive detailed instructions on how to log in.
