Leadership Training

The Leadership safeguarding training program provides an opportunity to develop your safeguarding skill set, to reflect on your safeguarding culture and identify potential areas for development. 

The training consists of two sessions set two weeks apart and are delivered either face-to-face or on Zoom. You need to attend both sessions to complete the module.

Please note that from January 2024, the Leadership Training is hosted on the Church of England Training Portal where workbooks, coursework, case study and certificates will be held. This will help individuals and the Diocese to keep track of most training completed in the Diocese. 

Before enrolling on this course please refer to our Training Pathway to check whether you need to complete this training.
