SSAB Training Programme


***Training update***

In light of recent Government advice on COVID-19, the Surrey safeguarding Adults Board has decided to cancel all training until further notice.

Update June 2020:

All courses remain on hold until further notice. Unfortunately we will not be taking any new bookings, to help clear the backlog of attendees who have had courses postponed once government guidelines allow us to reinstate these courses.

Once we have more information, we will update you further.

Adult Safeguarding Essential
In line with government guidelines we have postponed our July training date.
We are investigating options into running this course using a virtual classroom with our training provider. Priority will be given to those who have had their course postponed, although the number of attendees may be less per session.

The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board training programme is currently in development.

We are pleased to launch the following new training courses:

Contributing to a Section 42 Enquiry (1 day)

The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board are pleased to confirm the completion of their contributing to a section 42 enquiry training course.

This course is aimed at our partner organisations who would be required to submit information to a local authority section 42 enquiry and can not commit to becoming a train the trainer.

The course will consist of a full days training aimed at – Community safeguarding advisors/ leads, Registered Managers of Care/ Nursing Homes, GPs and Health colleagues.

The pre-requisite to attend this course –  SSAB Adult Safeguarding Essentials (or equivalent)

Contributing to a S42 Enquiry – Course Objectives

Booking for March 2020 is open, to book your place on the train the trainer course, please email with the course title in the heading.


Contributing to a Section 42 EnquiryTrain the Trainer (2 days)

The aim of the train the trainer session is to facilitate the SABs future trainers with all the information and materials required to facilitate their own organisations and multi-agency  training across Surrey.

The Train the Trainer course provides a more in depth knowledge of how to facilitate our Contributing to a S42 enquiry (1 day) course. The course will consist of 2 full days of training.

We do ask that you come prepared, as there will be an expectation for those attending to go on to deliver the course on behalf of the SAB via Multi-agency training courses set up by the SAB at set venues. Trainers will be asked to sign up to courses scheduled during 2020.

We do recommend that if you are unable to commit to the requirements of the train the trainer course, or from a small organisation we would recommend attending the Contributing to a Section 42 enquiry (1 day) course, and not the train the trainer.

The pre-requisite of the Train the trainer in additional to attending the SSAB Adult Safeguarding Essentials (or equivalent), we do ask that all candidates will have delivered safeguarding training within your own organisation.

If you are unsure which Contributing to a Section 42 enquiry training is right for you and your organisation, please email to discuss.

To book your place on the train the trainer course taking place in  March, please email with the course title in the heading.
