Level 1 Safeguarding Adults and Level 1 Mental Capacity Act are now available via E-Learning.

The Devon Safeguarding Adults Board have aligned their training offer to the Adult Safeguarding Roles and Competencies Intercollegiate Document 2018. Therefore, the adult safeguarding training levels have changed. These Level 1  E-Learning courses were previously called Level 2 Raising Safeguarding Concerns and Level 2 Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards E-Learning.

If you have undertaken the E-Learning within the last 3 years, then you do not need to undertake this module.

If you have a Devon County Council or a NHS email address, you can create an account, and access the E-Learning via DEL.

If you do not have a NHS or DCC email address, please email for them to set up an account for you. You will need to include your full name, contact details, your job role and the organisation that you work for in this email.
