National safeguarding training standards consultation

19 April 2022 - 17 June 2022
Social Care Wales

We want your views and ideas about the proposed national safeguarding training standards, which have been co-produced by a multi-agency national development group and others.

The standards were developed because there:

  • were no multi-agency national standards for safeguarding training in place
  • was a lack of consistency in the design, content and provision of safeguarding training across organisations in Wales
  • was confusion around the appropriate levels of safeguarding training for the workforce.

The standards will help organisations make sure:

  • they incorporate the standards for practitioners into their safeguarding policies and procedures
  • practitioners understand their responsibilities relevant to the group they’re in and how to follow the relevant policies and procedures
  • all practitioners have access to and comply with the Wales Safeguarding Procedures.

The consultation is open for eight weeks and will close at 11.59pm on 17 June 2022.
