Aims

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.

Engagement with all three elements of the Advanced Module will enable you to meet these aims.

Note:
You are required to have attended a Foundation Module event before attending the Advanced Module
(these are delivered within circuit) and you will be asked to confirm this when booking.
