Staff may not carry caseloads but still come into contact with children, families or carers. This could be over the telephone or face to face. All staff that come into contact with children, families or carers need to have an awareness of safeguarding. This involves being able to recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse and know how to manage and record a disclosure of abuse.

This course covers the national safeguarding training, learning and development standards - group A.

Memorable Principles:

• I know what the term safeguarding means

• I know what to look out for

• I know how to report

Group A practitioners are ALL staff who join a public or voluntary organisation in Wales. The training, learning and development standards are also suitable for those working in the private sector, volunteers and elected members of local authorities.
