Safeguarding Training

First published on: 28th May 2020

The Diocese of Ely Safeguarding team offer a number of training courses to help ensure our staff and volunteers meet all the requirements of their role. Much of the safeguarding training offered will be an essential requirement of a church role. For example, if you hold a church role it is probable that you will be required to have achieved at least one formal safeguarding training course. Most formal parish roles will require further levels of training to also be completed in addition to this Basic training module. Click here for more.
