Event description

Description

This day event is for all those who are required to attend the Advanced Module in safeguarding as part of their role.

PLEASE BRING A PACKED LUNCH - tea/coffee and biscuits will be available on arrival and at lunch.

Information about the course is below. For enquires or further details please contact Lorraine Darlow darlowl@methodistchurch.org.uk or tel 077999 00471

Core list of those who are required to attend an Advanced Course (or refresher within 4 years) include:

  • Safeguarding Coordinator – Circuit
  • Safeguarding Officer – District
  • Safeguarding Officer - Church
  • Members of the District Safeguarding Group
  • Members of the District Policy Committee
  • All presbyters or deacons with an active preaching or pastoral ministry including those supernumerary ministers who have pastoral care of a church
  • Those who are in paid employment or a voluntary role which includes leadership within the Methodist Church, which involves direct work with children, youth or vulnerable adults
  • Lay persons who are appointed to exercise pastoral leadership within a local church
  • Local Preachers
  • Worship Leaders

As the material focuses on leadership responsibilities rather than general safeguarding awareness, others for whom the training would be of benefit are warmly invited to attend, including Supernumerary ministers without pastoral care of a church. Consider how this may be relevant to your role to help decide whether attendance would be of benefit to you.

The Aim of the Advanced module is to consolidate and develop your previous safeguarding learning and to:

  • explore what this means in your designated role of responsibility within the Church
  • further equip you with skills and resources to be confident in promoting good practice in the Church and community
  • extend your understanding of responding well to different groups within the Church community.

Advanced Module course is split into three parts:

  • Essential preparation (available from the Methodist website and in book form - to be read prior to the Core learning session)
  • The Core learning session - which is the day event
  • Handbook (available from the Methodist website and in book form - as a resource for further study)

Engagement with all three elements of the Advanced Module will enable you to meet the aims. The essential preparation material will be forwarded to participants on registering and is available from the Methodist website. Handbooks will be issued on the day.
