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.

  All presbyters or deacons with an active preaching or pastoral ministry including those supernumerary ministers who have pastoral care of a church

  Safeguarding officer – church 
In addition: Warmly invited but not mandatory 

  Supernumerary ministers apart from those who have pastoral care of a church 

  It has not been possible to create a standard list. There should not be too many varied roles and responsibilities represented at the training since the material focuses on leadership responsibilities rather than general safeguarding awareness. However there needs to be flexibility for inclusion where this would be helpful. This decision making should form part of the responsibility of the District Safeguarding Group when planning the provision of Advanced Module day sessions, across the District.

Refreshments will be available from 9.30 with a start time of 10.00 and there will be a break for lunch.
