I particularly liked discussions and information. 

I enjoyed taking part in activities. Not just sat and got lectured to.

The break out discussions were helpful especially differing opinions of staff and priorities of managers.

I will take forward the importance of recording information and reporting any concerns.

What particularly worked well for me was discussing all the signs and behaviours of the different types of harm.

The course was very informative and very enjoyable. I feel I have come away with a better understanding of Adult Support and Protection.

I have a stronger awareness of my role as a carer when looking after vulnerable people.

I am more aware of the signs to look for from various types of harm which may occur.

I enjoyed the course, I think it covered everything that we need to know to assist in our duty to protect.

I particularly enjoyed the group engagement tasks. A lot of varied discussions and opinions.
