DBS Workshops (for those working in or supporting the Adult Care sector)

Skills For Care is working with the Disclosure & Barring Service’s Regional Outreach Adviser to the East Midlands, Lizzie Whittington, to offer you a two workshop series covering essential learning around DBS products and services and what you need to know to apply the learning in your organisation. These 90 minute workshops are ideal for those working in or supporting the Adult Care sector, particularly with recruitment or safeguarding responsibilities and while it is beneficial to attend both sessions, you can choose to attend one as a standalone event.
