1. Use to pre-screening job applicants

Test applicants’ knowledge and provide clear evidence of how up-to-date it is.

2. Use as part of your induction process

By incorporating the test into your induction process, all staff can be effectively benchmarked and, where appropriate, further training can be undertaken.

EduCare recommend that all staff working with vulnerable adults regularly refresh their knowledge of adult safeguarding, ideally every three years.
