Basic Awareness and Foundation Safeguarding Training for Bell Ringers
Saturday July 9, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
This Basic Awareness and Foundation training is tailor made for Bell Ringers. Bell Ringers are required to complete basic awareness safeguarding training. Any Tower Captains and those teaching children and young people should complete the basic awareness and foundation course. Tower Captains at Cathedrals, Ministers, Abbeys, and those which have frequent visitors or are used for teaching on a regular basis, should complete the Leadership pathway. Before attending the leadership training, basic and foundation training need to be completed.
As well as the option to complete the basic and foundation training as an E learning module through this link, Gloucester and Bristol Diocese are running some joint basic and foundation safeguarding training, tailored for Bell ringers with less theological input. These are designed for those who do not have a significant role outside of being a Bell Ringer and who wish to attend a course which has less theological material.
The sessions will be divided into two sections basic and foundation. The basic session will finish 1.5 hours after the start of the session, there will then be a short break to allow those continuing to and those who just need to complete the basic session to leave.
9am – 10.30am Basic Awareness
10.30am – 12pm Foundation
