As a trainer I would need to understand my own roles and responsibilities, with a necessity to understand the key aspects of legislation, regulations and codes of practice. As a trainer who works in a volunteering field which falls within a section in Children Services in City of Cardiff county council and Vale of Glamorgan County council I would need to have a basis of knowledge identifying the following:
A Legislative requirement being a duty to act according to the law as defined by an Act of Parliament and/or Welsh Assembly Government and these are usually enforceable through the courts.
The legislation which would be considered whilst taking any training session would include; Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Data Protection Act 1998, Equality Act 2010 and Children’s Act 1989 and 2004.
- The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 was the primary legislation regarding Health and Safety and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare within the United Kingdom.
