Armed Forces' recruits and trainees feel safe and well-supported but still room for improvement in welfare and care

15 Sep 2010

The training staff of the Armed Forces display a strong commitment to promoting the well-being of recruits and trainees, but there is still scope for improvement in the overall quality of welfare and duty of care, according to a report published today by Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.

The report, Welfare and duty of care in Armed Forces initial training, recognises the marked improvement made over the past six years and acknowledges that welfare and duty of care are now an intrinsic part of the training and support recruits and trainees receive. However, while progress has been made, there are indications that the pace of progress has slowed recently. The Armed Forces need to ensure momentum is maintained by addressing a number of issues relating to the training of recruits.
