Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Level 2

Course Type


About this course

After studying at Level 1, then this course examines the concept of vulnerability and the safeguarding of vulnerable adults in a variety of situations – some of which are regulated under the Care Standards Act 2000.

You will be able to focus, in detail, on the various forms that abuse can take and develop a better understanding of who is a vulnerable adult, who the potential abusers are and the actions you must take where abuse is disclosed.

Our course will help you in analysing key legislation and regulatory frameworks surrounding inter-agency collaboration including the “No Secrets” guidance, a review of the implementation of PoVA and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) and now the Disclosure and Barring service (DBS).


You will increase your knowledge of identifying and reporting actual or potential abuse and initiating formal investigation procedures. You will be able to define the term “abuse” and distinguish between the various patterns of abuse. Level 2 study means you will also recognise the differing types of abuse and their related signs and be able to spot the range of people who may be potential abusers in given contexts. You will have a good handle on pertinent government legislation and regulatory frameworks in order to protect vulnerable adults including the requirements of DBS, and you will know the importance of reporting and whistle-blowing on actual or potential abuse.

This course will be of particular interest if you currently work with or are working towards having lead responsibilities for safeguarding vulnerable adults.
