AWIF Section 6 Safeguarding individuals


A good induction makes sure workers understand the importance of person-centred practice and the values that underpin work in health and social care. A well-structured induction will also help workers settle and become more effective in their role.

It can increase employee commitment and job satisfaction, and has a positive effect on reducing staff turnover.


This safeguarding course covers the underpinning knowledge for section 6 of the all Wales induction framework for health and social care.

The induction framework creates a firm basis for new workers to help them develop their practice and future careers, in and across the health and social care sectors. It also provides you with a clear understanding of the knowledge, skills and values that you need to see to make sure new workers are safe and competent to practice, at this stage of their development.

Optional screening assessment allow individuals who can demonstrate prior knowledge to “fast track” their completion of the learning and assessments.

Assessment of performance can be recorded using the observation toolkit and separate assessments.

Topics Covered

  • Factors, situations and actions that could lead or contribute to harm, abuse or neglect.
  • Legislative frameworks for safeguarding.
  • Reporting and recording in relation to safeguarding.
  • Safeguarding individuals from harm, abuse or neglect.
