The role of Sutton Safeguarding Adult Board (SSAB) is to ensure there are good and robust systems in place across agencies in the borough so that adults are safeguarded, their welfare is promoted and agencies co-operate to achieve this. This all relies on a well informed and well-trained workforce that understands the roles and responsibilities of all agencies working with adults at risk.

SSAB offers a comprehensive training programme to increase the safeguarding knowledge, skills, and awareness of the workforce.

All SSAB training courses and events are available on our on-line booking system which also has the details of the Safeguarding Adults Competency Framework. Book early to avoid disappointment - registration only takes 2 minutes!

We are pleased to share the monthly overview of the SSAB training programme and to share with colleagues within your organisation. A zoom link will be sent to delegates a few days prior to the training takes place.  We will increase the number of places for popular courses and add further topics to the programme so please visit our L&D microsite regularly.

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has created an e-learning programme in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) that is free to access, without logging in for the entire UK health and care workforce. This includes those working in the NHS, the independent sector and social care. The programme includes key materials to help the health and care workforce respond to COVID-19. The programme currently includes limited resources, but HEE e-LfH will add more content in the coming days and weeks. The additional content will include new sessions and content curated from different sources such as existing HEE e-LfH sessions and materials from other organisations such as NHS England and NHS Improvement or the World Health Organization. Content in the programme currently includes:

  • Essential Guidance from the NHS, Government and WHO
  • Infection Prevention and Control
  • Personal Protection Equipment
  • Critical Care Resources
  • RCGP learning
  • Invasive Ventilation
  • Intensive Care Medicine
  • Induction of International and Returning GPs
  • Statutory and Mandatory training

HEE e-LfH has removed the requirement to log in to access the programme to make it as easy as possible for the health and care workforce to access the learning resources. However, accessing the content without logging in means that learning activity won’t be tracked, and it will not create a learning record. If staff wish to have a learning record to demonstrate their compliance, they will need to have an e-LfH account and be logged in. They can register for an e-LfH account using any email address. For more information about the programme, which is free for the health and care workforce to access without the need to register, visit the HHE-eLfH website.

Another HEE resource, SCRIPT e-learning, is now freely available to anyone with an NHS email address. For more information visit, email and or follow @safeprescriber on Twitter.

SCIE has put together a number of e-learning courses in response to Covid-19 -
