Safeguarding Learning and Development ( Training)

All Safeguarding Training Events have been cancelled due to Covid 19 restrictions.Emails have been sent to all attendees. Notices will be placed in the Bulletin and on the website once training is able to be resumed and new bookings made. 

From January 2020 a new programme of National Safeguarding Training is being introduced. From this date all Ordained Clergy, Readers, Licensed Ministers and Lay People in Leadership Roles working with children or vulnerable adults who need to undertake Safeguarding Training or renew their training will need to register on the Leadership Safeguarding Training Module. This module replaces both the previously run C2 and C3 modules and the new Leadership Module will acommodate both ordained and lay people in the same session. 

Before attending the new Leadership Module attendees will need to have previously completed C0 and C1 modules which are on line and can be found here. If you have completed these modules at any time between January 2016 and December 2019 you do not need to do them again. 

A programme of Safeguarding Training events for January - June 2020 has been organised with events taking place at various venues throughout the Diocese. While the Diocese recognises that some people may have difficulty in travelling large distances we do not have the resources available to provide training on a parish basis but have adopted a strategy that has identified centralised accessible venues in all of our Archdeaconries and ensured that that there are a spread of face-to-face sessions in those places.

If you wish to learn more about Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking, there are now two online courses  and additional resources including videos and case studies  produced by the Church of England and the Clewer Initiative. They can be accessed here

If you have difficulty in travelling because of illness or disability please contact the Safeguarding Team and we will consider reasonable readjustments to make training accessibile.

Safeguarding Training is valid for three years.
