trying the new module
Do you want to learn more about protecting adults at risk of harm? Do you know how you would report any concerns you have about someone in your community?
Adult Protection e-learning is a free learning module available to everyone. All you need is a computer with internet access. The module can be accessed 24 /7 making it flexible to fit around your busy schedule.
The new module was developed by Learning Nexus in conjunction with the Adult Protection Committee – a partnership of Fife Council, NHS Fife and Fife Constabulary who, with other organisations, work to support and protect adults at risk of harm.
Launched on ‘Learning at Work Day’ at an inter-agency event at Auchterderran Centre, Cardenden, the e-learning takes approximately an hour to complete, but the flexibility of the system can mark your place and allow you to leave the module and return at a later time or date.
John Myles, Independent Chair of the Adult Protection Committee said “E-learning is an easy and practical way to increase your knowledge of adult protection issues, learn about what harm is, and how to report it. Adult Protection is everyone’s business and this flexible learning module makes it easier for people to be confident and competent in their knowledge and skills, helping us all to ensure the safety and protection of adults at risk of harm.”
