About the National Safeguarding Training Standards
Social Care Wales has been leading on the development of the National Safeguarding Training Standards. The standards have been co-produced by a multi-agency national development group as well as other groups focused on specific aspects of the work.
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.
We’ve split the standards into six groups (A to F) that reflect the roles and responsibilities of people who may be involved in safeguarding practice.

The closing date for the consultation is 11.59pm, 17 June 2022.
