Training for childcare providers

Page updated on: 16/02/2024

The Family Information, Childcare and Play team facilitates and co-ordinates training to meet the needs of registered child carers within Carmarthenshire. They provide subsidised training to support childcare workers in meeting the standards set out by the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), i.e. compulsory courses such as First Aid and Basic Food Hygiene training.

The training also supports the personal development of childcare workers. After a successful pilot of an online Child Protection Course, this course is now available to all childcare workers. We welcome feedback from childcarers, so that we can identify gaps in training needs, and tailor courses to meet their specific needs.

The Family Information, Childcare and Play team believe that through offering quality childcare and education and promoting qualified well trained staff, children and families in the communities will benefit.

To find out about future courses please phone the Family Information, Childcare and Play team Training Officer on 01267 246555 or visit the Family Information Service website for a list of courses available.
