For those working directly with children or vulnerable adults in the church
Safeguarding training appropriate to your role is essential and the Diocese of Sheffield follows the Church of England’s ‘Safeguarding Learning and Development Framework’.
This course is led by our Diocesan Safeguarding Team and should be repeated at least every three years to act as a reminder and to update you with regard to changes in legislation and guidelines.
This is for helpers at children and adult activities, PCC or Board of Trustee members, Churchwardens.
Learning aims are to situate safeguarding in the context of the Church and equip participants with knowledge and skills in knowing what, when and how to report concerns.
There are no academic or educational requirements. For the role of Parish Safeguarding Officer you would ideally be from a background where safeguarding is important such as child care or teaching.
Safeguarding training is currently offered free of charge.
Safeguarding training may well be included as part of other training courses or processes so please check. Places on training courses are limited so booking your place is essential – please obtain an application form by contacting Trish Stafford:
Sue Lamprell, Training Administrator: Sue.Lamprell@sheffield.anglican.org 01709 309140
Training could take place in various locations around the diocese.
