New safeguarding awareness training pack
Social Care Wales and WCVA announce updated version of safeguarding awareness guide, for training those who work with children and vulnerable adults.
The pack is provided for competent trainers to deliver safeguarding training to the workforce across many settings where there is contact with children and adults at risk. It provides a variety of interactive elements to support the participant to:
- know own role in relation to safeguarding adults, children and young people from harm, abuse and neglect;
- understand how individuals are protected from harm, abuse and neglect;
- know how to recognise different types of harm, abuse and neglect; and
- know the recent changes to safeguarding as a result of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.
The course is aligned with the All Wales Induction Framework for Health and Social Care and has been mapped to the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the Level 2 Award for Social Care Induction (Wales) unit ‘Induction to Safeguarding in Social Care in Wales’, allowing for accreditation.
Social Care Wales and WCVA are indebted to the hard work of the original authors Sue Gwynn and Rhys Hughes in revising the pack to reflect the ethos and terminology of the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act. We also wish to thank the safeguarding trainers and practitioners who contributed to our consultation event.
