Safeguarding Training Programme 2020

In 2020 we are offering a new training programme in line with the new House of Bishops Training Practice and Guidance

We will no longer be delivering the combined C1/C2. Clergy C3 and the C5 refresher courses have now been discontinued.

Please note: required courses are essential attendance and recommended is best practice in accordance with the new guidance.

The Safeguarding Courses for 2020 are:


Basic Awareness (previously C0) - online course

Recommended for anyone who wants a basic awareness of safeguarding.


Foundation (previously C1) - online course

Required for anyone who has safeguarding responsibilities or who has contact with children and/or vulnerable adults. (Every role within the church has a safeguarding responsibility).


Leadership (previously C2) - face to face course

Required for anyone who has safeguarding leadership responsibilities or responsible for activities involving children and/or vulnerable adults. (Foundation (C1) will have to be completed by everyone before attending the Leadership course.

Raising Awareness of Domestic Abuse and Violence (previously S3) – face to face course

Required for anyone holding a Bishops licence, commission, authorisation or PTO, Spiritual directors, Bishops visitors, Pastoral visitors and Safeguarding officers.

Recommended for Senior staff teams, churchwardens, leaders of children’s/adults activities, children and youth workers, others as relevant to role.


Safer Recruitment – online course coming soon

Required for anyone with responsibilities for DBS administering, recruiting, designated members of PCC who sit on interview panels and safeguarding officers.


Refresher courses

Required for anyone after 3 years of the initial Safeguarding training course.

If you have completed the former C1 only, your refresher course is the new Foundation (C1) online safeguarding course.

If you completed the former C1/C2 combined or the C3 Clergy course, your refresher safeguarding course is the Leadership (C2) face to face course only (you are not required to complete the Foundation (C1) beforehand).


Deanery training dates and venues will be offered throughout the year and we will no longer be taking parish requests.
