This section contains the core Safeguarding training that will be taking place during 2019/20. Some events may be specifically for those who work in Adults or Children’s Services however if relevant and appropriate, and with line managers approval, applications can be made to attend any of the advertised courses. Alongside the core training there will be additional events, to meet emerging needs.

Priority will be given to those working in the social care sector across RCT and Merthyr that have been commissioned by either local authority and statutory partners i.e. health; education; probation; police; early years settings; with distribution being as equitable as possible to all services. Any spare capacity will be given to any other service requesting access - examples of which could be leisure, housing association, communities first, wider community groups, etc

NB - if there is a question of where a service/agency fits in terms of priority then a decision will be reached by the relevant training officer and/or workforce development manager prior to confirming
