C0 is suitable for all individuals within the church community who need to have a basic awareness of safeguarding.  It can also be used as an introduction for anyone who is interested in how the church approaches safeguarding work.

The C1 modules are compulsory for anyone whose work brings them into contact with children, young people and/or adults who may be at risk, or who supervise those who do. 

We provide two separate C1 e-learning programmes which cover issues specific to the protection of adults or children within our organisation in regard to safe working practices, signs and symptoms of abuse and how to respond to concerns.

Aim: To provide introductory training on how to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and/or adults who may be at risk of abuse.

Details: E-learning modules are a pre-requisite for attendance at other training modules and can be done individually or as a group (see below).

Individuals should complete the appropriate course for their role within three months of commencement.
