Temporary change to Safeguarding Training requirements (20/05/2020)

Due to the travel and contact restrictions that have been imposed to cope with the spread of Covid 19, the Methodist Church has had to make many changes to its normal programmes and plans.

 This has also had an impact for those members, officers and ministers who are required to undertake Foundation and Advanced Module safeguarding  training every four years, due to the cancellation of some training courses.

 It has therefore been agreed that, for all those who have reached the four year point since they last undertook the relevant training, a temporary six month extension will be applied in order to allow for the current lockdown period and allow new training dates to be planned for in the Autumn.

Henry Lewis, Chair Safeguarding Committee

From September 2017 the training interval for refreshers will be 4 years as per Conference decision in 2016. Using this pattern, the Methodist Church ensures that everyone in key roles receives this good quality training.

Please contact your District Safeguarding Officer with any queries on  safeguarding training or how to book on.  Contact Details
