OSAB Workforce Development and Training Strategy
OSAB has a duty to ensure that partners provide training for staff and volunteers on legislation, policies, procedures and professional practices that reflect the local safeguarding adult arrangements. It must also ensure that safeguarding training is consistently and effectively applied by practitioners within their day to day practice.

The purpose of the strategy below is to set out the Board's vision and framework for adult safeguarding training. It sets out priorities for staff development based on OSAB’s Three-Year Strategy, Care Act responsibilities, competency requirements and learning from Oldham’s Safeguarding Adult Reviews. All partner agencies of the Board have agreed to adopt the strategy.
