The House of Bishops' policies Promoting a Safe Church (2006), Protecting All God's Children (2010) and the recommendations from the Chichester report all highlight the importance of regular safeguarding training for:

  • Everyone who works with children (under 18) or adults who are vulnerable;
  • Everyone in a position of authority or trust;
  • Everyone who holds a Bishop's Licence or has the Bishop's Permission to Officiate. 

Legislation, government policy and good practice guidelines relating to safeguarding change on a regular basis and it is important to keep up to date with these changes by attending appropriate training.

The Diocese of Coventry provides a range of different safeguarding training events which are all free of charge.  Booking is essential since there's a limited number of places at each event.
