To support effective safeguarding arrangements across Salford, the SSAB is committed to providing multi-agency safeguarding training.
We have a training strategy which has been agreed by the board and sets out our priorities. We also have a competency framework which sets out training requirements for staff working in different roles and should help you to ensure that staff within your organisation receive the appropriate level of training.
From September we will be holding some new ‘Bite Size Briefings’ on a range of topics. They will be 1 hour long and at the first one you can find out more about that ‘What is the Safeguarding Adults Board’. Please look out for more information in our SSAB Latest News, check back here for more information or e-mail us at email@example.com
Due to the current pandemic, we are not currently delivering any face to face training. We are currently planning alternative training for our priority areas such as domestic abuse, mental capacity act, self neglect and others so please do check this page regularly for updates.

MAPPA training - 10th November 2021
Public protection is everyone’s business, and the Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) set out the statutory framework to which all public sector agencies have a Duty to Cooperate when dealing with individuals convicted of the most serious offences. Regardless of your role, if someone you are working with is associated to a MAPPA registered individual or they are registered themselves, you may be called upon to contribute to the MAPPA process.
Delivered by Law Enforcement specialists, this 90 minute "bite size" input is for all safeguarding professionals, managers and practitioners from across the multi-agency spectrum who work with individuals convicted of serious crimes and living in your area.
Course Aims – This course aims to provide an introduction to understanding what MAPPA actually means, how the framework is used and implemented when dealing with the most serious offenders in our community, and to provide guidance on how the law applies to your agency and what your individual roles and responsibilities are.
Course Objectives –
- Outline the purpose and function of MAPPA
- Detail the framework for the classification of MAPPA Offenders
- Explain the process of escalation between Management Levels
- Set out the principles of Information Sharing and Disclosure
- Clarify your role in MAPPA and the support you will receive from the GM's Multi Agency Public Protection Team.
