The C1 module is 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 use the Church of England C1 e-learning programme 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: The C1 E-learning module is a pre-requisite for attendance at other training modules.
