Launch of Kwango Safeguarding Adults under the Care Act 2014 E-Learning

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

From April 2015 there are considerable changes to Safeguarding Adults at Risk as a result of the introduction of The Care Act.

We have therefore undertaken a major update of our Safeguarding at Risk E-learning programme and are delighted to announce that Safeguarding Adults under the Care Act 2014 E-Learning is replacing it. This is the latest addition to its other popular Adult Services and Healthcare E-Learning Courses.

Safeguarding Adults under the Care Act 2014 E-learning is designed to help Health and Social Care staff plus other Statutory, Private, Voluntary and Independent Sector Agencies in a number of ways.  These include enabling practitioners to understand what abuse is and how to recognise it; what to do if you suspect and adult from being abused; how to develop skills in listening to a victim; how to reduce the likelihood of abuse; the referral/alert process and the multi-agency response.

This course is designed to meet the requirements of the Care Certificate Standard 10.

Through our use of clear content, careful animation, social care and healthcare case studies, interviews, quizzes, further information and guided learning, we can help all your multi-agency staff protect adults with care and support needs.

Everyone has the right to live their life free from abuse and neglect.  Anyone who is aware of abuse has the responsibility to take action.

Launch of Early Help Assessment (CAF) E-Learning

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

Kwango is pleased to announce the launch of its Early Help Assessment (CAF) E-Learning course, which is the latest addition to its other popular Children’s Services and Health Care E-Learning Courses.

Early Help Assessment (EHA) is a revision of the Common Assessment Form (CAF), a shared assessment and planning framework for use across all Children’s Services throughout England. It is used for children and young adults who need to access specialist services in addition to the universal services of education and healthcare.

Our Early Help Assessment E-Learning Course aims to help multi-agency practitioners in a number of ways.  These include enabling practitioners to identify children and young people with additional needs early and so help them before things reach crisis point; provide an assessment framework which is available to the whole of the children’s workforce; improve joint working and communication; support information sharing; make assessments more consistent and reduce the number of assessments carried out on children. These will all help improve relationships between practitioners and children, young people and their families.

Through our use of clear content, careful animation, case studies, interviews, quizzes, further information and guided learning, we can help all your multi-agency staff to fully understand the importance of EHA for vulnerable families.

Our Early Help Assessement (CAF) E-Learning course can also be customized to meet your local needs.
