Training is one of the key things that we do to help the church fully engage with the young people around her. We offer centralised training that churches can send people to, as well as bespoke training for parishes or groups of parishes at times and locations to suit. To stay up to date with the latest information about training courses and events, join our mailing list here. As a general rule, we run The Key on request at a time and place to suit you, and Cracking Youthwork (our training event for anyone involved in youth work) in the Spring. We also offer training and PCC away days on request. Safeguarding (Child Protection) training is run by the diocesan safeguarding trainer, more details of which can be found at the bottom of the page here.
For employed workers, we offer a First timer training scheme (in conjunction with the Children’s Work Adviser) every Monday in term time. You can see our other training dates above.
If there is a training need that you have, and we can’t do it, we probably know someone who can, so do please ask!
