Safeguarding Learning and Development ( Training)

Due to current restrictions we are now only able to offer Learning and Development sessions online via Zoom using materials designed specifically for this by the National Safeguarding Team.

Attendance on the course is currently by invitation only and we are having to prioritise Clergy and LLMs whose training expired during 2020 or earlier and those who have not yet completed any leadership training. We are identifying those Clergy and LLM's whose training has expired and they will receive an invitation to join a cohort in due course however there maybe a delay in this while we work within the limits of the new conditions and technology. 

Safeguarding Training is valid for three years from the date of attendance and all participants are strongly advised to keep their certificate as a record and proof of completion. Your licence to minister is dependent upon you holding valid and in date safeguarding training. If you have undertaken Leadership or C3 Safeguarding during the last three years in another diocese within the Church of England, please send proof of your attendance/completion of the course to in order that we can ensure your record is kept up to date. 

Before attending the Virtual Leadership Module delegates will need to have previously completed C0 and C1 modules  on line. If you have completed these modules at any time between January 2016 and December 2019 you do not need to do them again. If you have never attended a C3 Leadership Module (run from 2016 - 2019) you will need to complete C0 and C1 before attending the virtual session. 

We would ask that any person involved in Lay Leadership roles, whose training has expired, completes C1 online to ensure that, under the present circumstances, their training is as up to date as possible. 

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.
