About this event

Parish Safeguarding Officer Induction

The national safeguarding training and development practice guidance sets out the framework for safeguarding training to ensure that all Church officers are trained in aspects of safeguarding. Parish life is the heart of the Diocese and is the most important context to get our safeguarding right. The Parish Safeguarding Officer role is a vital one – the ‘champion’ of safeguarding in the parish.

This induction course aims to help PSOs understand the role, responsibilities, and key working relationships of the Parish Safeguarding Officer, identify a variety of approaches to raising awareness and improving safeguarding practice, and evaluate safeguarding information reported by members of the church or community and determining an appropriate response. The evaluation task will encourage increased knowledge of the Parish Dashboard, and planning forward to ensure safeguarding is well-managed in the church.

PSOs are also required to follow the Core Pathway of Safeguarding training – Basic Awareness, Foundation, and Leadership, and also Safer Recruitment training.

This course is for Clergy and members of Church of England communities in the Diocese of Derby. Please do not book if you do not fall into these groups.
