1.1 The National Training Framework for VAWDASV

Similarly Welsh Government's key mechanism for delivering the Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Act 2015, (VAWDASV) is the National Training Framework, (NTF).

The National Training Framework is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom and specifies the proportionate training required in the public sector to ensure the professional response to domestic abuse and violence against women is consistent across Wales.

The framework is in the early adoption phase within the public sector within Gwent.
