The core training is for PCC members, church wardens, bell tower captains and their deputies, pastoral visitors, nominated people and those helping or leading groups for children or vulnerable adults.
The sessions are 2.5 hours long and we have put on workshops across the Diocese. We cover safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, safer recruitment and you will get the opportunity to work through scenarios relating to your role.
To book on please…
- Look at the dates and venues http://www.gloucester.anglican.org/about-us/safeguarding/core-training/
- Discuss with your incumbent and nominated person for safeguarding
- Book on by contacting us on 01452 410022 or email@example.com
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or queries.
We would recommend that you discuss the training opportunities at one of your upcoming PCC meetings.
Core Training – aimed at those on PCCs, Churchwardens and those with trustee or other children and vulnerable adult responsibilities in parish settings, and for Nominated People. We sadly cant visit every PCC so we are offering a range of sessions across the year which we hope many will attend. You will need to check with your PCC members if they have attended training so that you can update any of your local records.
