In April 2015, WSCB approved its new Training Strategy for 2015-18.  The training strategy sets out the expectations of the type of training staff should be provided with, dependant upon the nature of their safeguarding responsibilities.  It clarifies the expectation that core safeguarding training is the responsibility of individual employers.  

The training strategy details the quality assurance role that WSCB (through its Training Sub-Committee) will have with regards to training and outlines WSCB priorities for multi-agency safeguarding children training, which is delivered by WSCB.

All organisations involved in the Children’s workforce are responsible for ensuring that their staff and volunteers are competent and confident in carrying out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  It is the responsibility of all statutory and non-statutory organisations to recognise that in order for staff and volunteers to fulfil their duties consistent with Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015, different groups of staff and volunteers will have different training needs.  Individual training needs are dependent on the degree of contact with children and young people and/or with adults who are parents and carers, and their level of responsibility and independence in decision making.  Staff and volunteers should be supported and encouraged through practice to share learning gained from training to broaden the impact and support ongoing practice developments assisting in the continuous focus of improving outcomes for children.

Employees and volunteers in managerial positions have a responsibility to ensure learning is cascaded amongst staff teams and that this cascading can be evidenced.  

All WSCB training course are evaluated and feedback collated is proactively used ensuring continuous improvement.
