This Safeguarding Children in Wales course has been designed to help you develop a greater understanding of safeguarding legislation and procedures in Wales.


What will I learn?

Safeguarding of the child is the first priority, it is everybody’s responsibility. Any person that is in contact with children and their families has a role to play in keeping them safe.

The Wales Safeguarding Procedures build on the statutory guidance of the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act 2014. This course has been developed in line with Group B standards of the National safeguarding training, learning and development standards, to help you understand your expectations as a childcare practitioner should you have reasonable cause to suspect a child is at risk of abuse, neglect or harm. It will give you extra reassurance and confidence in your practice to recognise signs of harm and implement the procedures for reporting any concerns you might have.

The course has been designed to meet the Group B requirements outlined within Annex C of the National Minimum Standards for regulated childcare for children up to the age of 12 years (NMS).

Key topics include:

  • Legislation, national policies and codes of conduct related to professional practice
  • Working in ways that safeguard children from abuse, harm and neglect
  • Factors, situations and actions that could lead or contribute to abuse, harm or neglect
  • How to report, respond and record concerns or allegations related to safeguarding

Course duration: 4-6 hours

“I’ve completed the Group B training. I found it really comprehensive and also provided the learner with banks of information that I can refer back to at any point. As it is such a difficult subject I really liked the fact that I could stop and start at any time when the subject became too difficult. I ended up completing it on three different days and I’ve advised my staff to do the same so they do not feel too overwhelmed”. – Nicola from Lullabyz Nursery, Newport
