Everyone working in either a voluntary or paid capacity in the Diocese needs to update their Safeguarding Training every 3 years.

This training is from the National Safeguarding Training and Development Framework for The Church of England and every Diocese is expected to cover the same core information. To view the training and development framework for 2019, click here.

C modules are core modules and are the compulsory modules of training to be completed. These modules are transferable across Dioceses. Attendance forms part of a ministerial review for clergy.

Refresher Modules

The Training and Development practice guidance requires Safeguarding Training to be refreshed every 3 years. For those who hold the Bishop’s licence or permission to officiate attending core safeguarding training every three years is a condition of that licence.
