Creating Safer Spaces

Safeguarding: Foundation Module

Train the Trainers

The majority of people with a role at church, are required to undertake the Foundation Module of Safeguarding Training, however it's not always easy to find available courses.

If you or your church would like to take control of safeguarding training then this is the course for you.

In Train the Trainers we equip you with the skills and practical things you need to deliver the Foundation module. You would then be able to support the training needs of your church or join your Circuit Training team.

As a trainer you will need to have completed the Foundation module and to complete the Advanced module within 6 months. You will also need the approval of your Circuit Meeting prior to attending the training.

The training is in two parts. 
Part A – Familiarisation – a 2 hour session giving familiarity with the training material, this is essential for anyone new to training, but can also be attended by those wishing to refresh their knowledge
Part B – Facilitation skills – a 2 hours session looking at some of the specific skills needed to facilitate and manage the material, especially looking at known issues which have been raised in the past. This is essential for new trainers and again may be of use to those who are more experienced.

Both sessions must be completed before you can become a Foundation Module trainer. Attending the Part A as a refresher is recommended.

Creating Safer Spaces:

safeguarding; sanctuary; safer to be different; safer to explore; safer all around.

Creating safer space.

Not just the name of a report or the theme for a presidential address. But it's a task, a role and a challenge for the Church and for each person here today, every single one of us.
Creating safer space.
