Standards for safeguarding training

Guidance for commissioners

This guidance is supplied to support commissioners (those who commission or appoint trainers to deliver safeguarding training in Wales, for payment, to the workforce for children and adults at risk in Wales) to engage effective and appropriate trainers.

This guidance should be viewed as aspirational for individuals intending to become deliverers of safeguarding training (or any specific topics within the wider remit of safeguarding e.g. Prevent), and for commissioners of in-house trainers, or those who deliver safeguarding training as part of a wider job role.

Safeguarding is a very particular and demanding topic to deliver. It is vital to the competency of the workforce who safeguard others that they are trained by those with sufficient sensitivity, knowledge and credibility.
