Online Safeguarding Training

Core 1 is now available to complete online and must be completed before attending face to face modules. Please note that Core 0 is undergoing substantial revision by the national safeguarding team and should not be completed. We therefore strongly encourage that all those for whom Core 0 is recommended, including PCC members, complete the Core 1 module pending the revision.

Face to face Core 1 training is still available at a parish level or for small groups by request.

We would be happy to attend PCC meetings to respond to any questions arising from the training or to facilitate a discussion about the safeguarding responsibilities of the PCC in the parish or benefice. Please email Boo Squires, Safeguarding Administrator, to arrange this.

If you are having difficulty with  answering any questions in the module please get in touch with Jane Huttly, Diocesan Policy Training Adviser​, who will be happy to advise.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
