New Safeguarding Training Pack and App Launched
Date Added : 9/17/2014 10:50:44 AM

All Wales Basic Safeguarding Awareness Training pack is the result of a partnership between the Care Council for Wales, WCVA, and local authority social services, using the best of the learning programmes already available to develop one agreed national programme. 

The training pack is aligned to the Social Care Induction Framework Quality Assured Lifelong Learning Unit and this gives an added advantage should organisations choose to accredit the learning.

The materials have been piloted across a range of third sector groups and local authority settings. This has enabled the development of a robust training pack that reflects the Wales policy agenda and context of practice. It promotes ethical and person-centred safeguarding practice and promotes the message that safeguarding is everyone's business.

The pack will be supported by a digital, mobile learning resource, to help remind people of the key messages wherever they are, so we look forward to hearing how the pack and the 'App' have been used to promote and embed good practice across Wales.

The app tests care workers' knowledge of how to keep people safe and has been developed to help paid workers and volunteers who provide care services for adults and children, testing their understanding of the key concepts of safeguarding.

The app is free of charge and available for Android and Apple phones or tablets. Once downloaded, the app can be referred to without the need to connect to the internet, making it easy to access.

To download the app, search for 'Safeguarding - test your knowledge' in the  App Store and  Google Play.
