NASS are holding a one day virtual training event via Zoom for Identifying and Investigating Allegations of Professional Abuse on 8th December 2022.  Timings for this online training will be 9.15 am (9:30 am start) to 4:00 pm.

  • be able to describe a range of behaviours that could be considered ‘allegations of professional abuse’
  • be familiar with the statutory guidance and relevant legislation, including time-scales and record-keeping
  • review and, if necessary, update their own policy and procedures to ensure best practice
  • have a sound understanding of the role and responsibilities of an investigating officer
  • be able to plan then undertake an efficient investigation and draw conclusions confidently
  • appreciate when suspension may be appropriate, and possible alternatives to suspension
