Purpose of the Regional Training Directory

This page acts as a hub for information about safeguarding training across the Mid and West Wales region. Information about both regional events and internal agency training can be found here.

Please note that training listed in individual agencies (e.g. County Councils) is available to staff working in that agency only unless otherwise specified.

Upcoming Regional Training

Please note there are no scheduled regional events at this time.

Information in respect of future events will be shown here.


Carmarthenshire have moved away from using flyers and bulletins to promote training. Instead, their entire course provision is placed on the following portal, through which applications and queries can also be made: http://intranet/our-people/learning-and-development/social-care-wales-workforce-development-programme-scwwdp/
