Safeguarding training

  • In an emergency situation please call the Police on 999.

The Church of England has a safeguarding learning and development framework which ensures that training is available to everyone in every Church of England community to enable them to safeguard children and adults and to work and worship safely together. The framework was approved by the House of Bishops in December 2015 and has been revised and reissued in January 2017.

Core modules (beginning with ā€˜Cā€™) are either recommended or required for those in named roles. Specialist courses are either essential or desirable depending on the role or in some cases they are indicated as being relevant to a role.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA)  and Diocesan Training and Development Officer are  available to advise on training and other safeguarding practice issues.

Safeguarding Training Courses provided by the Diocese can be booked here.
