Safeguarding is so important that it is something of which everyone in the church should have an understanding. We now have training that is accessible on line and we would encourage everyone to take the opportunity to find out more about safeguarding.
We insist on face to face training for those who hold a licence, have permission to officiate, are parish safeguarding officers or have a position of responsibility in a church. However, on line training is a really useful way of allowing many more people to easily increase their knowledge.
Face to face safeguarding training is taking place across the diocese, as set out in the schedule below.
Attendance at courses must be booked in advance with the Diocesan Office on 0113 2000 540 or email enquiries [at] leeds.anglican.org
There is a maximum of 25 delegates per course, and a minimum of 10. Courses which do not meet the minimum numbers will be cancelled 7 days beforehand and delegates will be informed if this happens.
Please let the office know if you have any special requirements.
Due to budget constraints we are unable to provide lunch during training sessions; you are most welcome to bring a packed lunch with you. Hot and cold drinks will be provided.
Note: it will not be possible to send out reminders of bookings. Delegates are asked to check the diocesan website for details of the venues.
