How is training arranged?

All Congregational Safeguarding Training (Volunteer, Coordinator and Kirk Session) is organised at presbytery level and not directly through the Safeguarding Service.

Who should attend?

All volunteers doing regulated work with Children or Protected Adults should attend Volunteer (Part 1 Coordinator) Training. All new coordinators are required to attend Volunteer (Part 1 Coordinator) Training and Part 2 Coordinator Training. Members of the Kirk Session should attend Kirk Session Training.
