The Oxfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board (OSAB) has a multi-agency strategy for training in Safeguarding Adults.

As part Books and ipad on deskof this strategy the OSAB has developed the following core adult safeguarding training:

Level 1 – Basic Introduction to Adult Safeguarding (E-Learning)

Level 2 – Awareness (Face-to-Face Training)

Level 3 – Caseworker (Face-to-Face Training)

Level 4 – Lead/Manager (Face-to-Face Training)


Following NHS Guidance, it is expected professionals refresh their training every 3 years as a minimum.

How training is delivered

All core face-to-face training is delivered by professionals working with adults at risk and in adult safeguarding.

The training is delivered via a multi-agency model, as this supports practitioners and volunteers in understanding their roles, responsibilities and safeguarding procedures.

It also creates a shared understanding of assessment and decision-making practices.

How to sign up for training

Once you’ve found a course and a date suitable for you, you will be asked to register for the course via our online booking portal. You will have to pay a fee if your agency isn’t a financial contributor to the Safeguarding Board.

Please complete the registration with your own details, as this will ensure Certificates of Attendance are in your name, and not that of someone who may have booked on your behalf.

If you require training outside of the provided dates or delivered in-house to all staff at once, or if you have any queries about the booking system, you can contact OSAB at
