Adult Support and Protection Second Worker Investigative Training

Course overview

This 1 day course has been developed to support and identify the skills and knowledge required to undertake the role and function of a second worker, as part of the Adult Support and Protection 2007 Act. This course will consider the duties and expectations of the second worker in practice.

You should only apply for either the Multi Agency Awareness training or the Second Worker training and not both.

Learning Outcomes

The learning objectives will address the requirements of undertaking an Adult Support and Protection inquiry and investigation, covering the period of receipt of initial concern through to the Adult Support and Protection Case Conference. The course will underline best practice and the course programme adheres to the requirements of the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007, the Code of Practice and Glasgow’s current procedures.

Course provider: Social Work Services

Who should attend?

All members of the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership are welcome to apply after discussion and approval from their managers.

Health partners will be involved both in referral and in supporting the investigation process through the sharing of relevant medical information or undertaking a medical examination of the adult at risk. Whilst the lead investigating officer (council officer) for Glasgow City Council will be a registered and qualified social worker, in certain circumstances, it may be appropriate for a health professional to be involved along with the council officer in the course of an investigation. Therefore, this Second Worker training is recommended to support staff within this role.

Only health staff nominations can be accepted via eESS. All social work staff should apply through the Social Work Services.
