Safeguarding Coordinator Training (online)

In light of recent changes regarding the PVG application process, the Safeguarding Service is hosting two Safeguarding Coordinator Training sessions online. The sessions will be exactly the same so do not register for both.

The dates and times are as follows:

Thursday 6 May: 10am - 12.15pm (with a break)

Wednesday 19 May: 7 - 9.15pm (with a break)

All new Safeguarding Coordinators must also attend Introductory Safeguarding Training (for workers and volunteers) - please refer to the Safeguarding Training Calendar for this. It would be helpful if you have attended this prior to this training but it is not essential and can be attended after.

To register for either of these dates, please email with the date you would like to attend, your name, congregation, email address and whether you have attended Introductory Safeguarding Training.

Keep up to date
