    CSTF Safeguarding Adults - Level 3 - Online Training Course.

    Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's CSTF Safeguarding Adults online course. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

    All agencies and professionals involved with the adult at risk have a duty to share all relevant information promptly and must never assume that someone else has done so. Healthcare organisations are responsible for ensuring people’s dignity and rights and meeting statutory duties to safeguard adults, including a systematic approach, effective leadership at all levels and an organisational culture where care and compassion are valued. 

    This course covers safeguarding adults training for healthcare workers at Level 3 and meets the learning outcomes of the UK Core Skills Training Framework (UKCSTF) v1.1. Make sure you have completed all the training required according to your local policies and procedures.
