Safeguarding Training and Development Practice Guidance (CofE)
Replacing the 2015 House of Bishops’ Learning and Development Framework Practice Guidance, this training framework supports the development and maintenance of the necessary knowledge, attitude and skills to safeguard and protect children, young people and vulnerable adults.
It sets out:
The expectations and requirements for safeguarding training and development in a church context, and how this relates to statutory requirements;
The required core training modules, including learning aims and objectives, plus training expectations and requirements by role;
Details of specialist training modules, including learning aims and objectives;
Practical advice for implementing training requirements in full.
This practice guidance is commended by the House of Bishops and is designed for use by diocesan, provincial and national safeguarding advisers, archbishops and bishops, deans and their senior staff.
