As the issuing authority for apprenticeship frameworks in Wales, we have been working with employers to develop a new Welsh Apprenticeship Framework for new Custody or Detention officers, both in the public and private sector.
The purpose of this framework is to provide a qualification and training suitable for new custody or detention officers joining the sector, ensuring they are held in a secure, safe and decent environment and work as part of a team, prioritising the safety of everyone in custody and/or detention centres.
On behalf of the Welsh Government, we are now looking to gather insight, views and opinions on best practice from employers, training providers and other stakeholders across the sector in Wales by inviting feedback to inform this development.
The consultation has now closed. If you would like to register your interest to be kept up to date about the progress of the framework, please complete your details below.
