Advanced Safeguarding Module – online

Creating Safer Spaces:

Advanced Safeguarding Training Online

There is now the option to complete the safeguarding Advanced Module online. There will be further face-to-face Advanced Module training, but if you are able to complete the Module online, please see information below.

The course is split into 2 sections:
Self-Study/e-learning – You will receive login details for Theology X which will give you access to online material to explore at home. It is expected that it will take around 4-7 hours to go through all the material online, however, you can split this up into smaller chunks of time and complete it over the month. This material does need completing at least two full working days prior to attending the Zoom session with the trainers. Trainers will check if you have completed the online material before the Zoom session, if you have been unable to do so by the date of the Zoom session, you will need to transfer your Zoom session attendance to a later date.

Gathered Session – This is a 2-hour Zoom session for up to 20 people with the District's Advanced Module Trainers. There will be opportunity to reflect on learning from the online self-study material and engage in further discussion with others.

You will receive access to the self-study on Theology X around a month before. Booking for the dates will close about a month before. This is to allow everyone enough time to receive and complete the self-study material before attending the Zoom session. The Zoom link will be sent nearer the time of the Gathered Session.
