Training and Workforce Development Sub Group

Overall purpose of the Training and Workforce Development Sub Group

As an improvement group of HSAB / HSCB, the Multi Agency Safeguarding Workforce Development Sub Group is responsible for developing and maintaining a single Safeguarding Strategy and provides evidenced assurance to HSAB / HSCB that partner agencies are meeting the requirements of the Strategy. This will ensure that people working in Herefordshire understand their responsibilities to adults and children with regard to safeguarding.

On behalf of the HSAB / HSCB, ensure that both Boards fulfil their statutory function in relation to persons who work with service users (eg children and vulnerable adults) or in services affecting the safety of children and vulnerable adults. This includes signposting to providers of single agency training.

The group has particular responsibility to ensure that multi-agency development opportunities exist for all targeted practitioners.
