Leadership 2020/21

Leadership 2020/21

This module is required for anyone who has safeguarding leadership responsibilities or responsibility for leading activities involving children, young people and/or adults who may be vulnerable.

The National Safeguarding Team has created a brand-new package which has replaced the old face to face module.  For the foreseeable future all the trainer led elements of the 2 sessions in the module will be carried out via Zoom.

The training consists of:

  1. Completing a workbook and returning this to the trainer four working days prior to the first of the two virtual sessions via Zoom.
  2. Attending the first virtual session via Zoom
  3. Completing a reflection on a psalm and a case study prior to attending the second Zoom session
  4. Completion of a reflection and watching a 2 hour documentary after the second Zoom session.

A reading list of relevant policies and some other sources is also provided, the reading is not a requirement however attendees are encouraged to develop their knowledge by use of these resources. 

Please note you are required to attend both of the two Zoom sessions for a particular course, these dates are not interchangeable:

There are only 12 places for each course.  Please do not book on behalf of others, as the preparation documents and Zoom session links will be sent to the email address supplied in the booking.  Please note you only need to book once to have a place on both Zoom sessions.

Once you have booked a place on a course, please email a copy of your certificates for Basic Awareness (formerly C0) and Foundation (formerly C1) safeguarding training to alison.jones@rochester.anglican.org as completion of these modules is now a requirement for attending the Leadership module for the first time. If you have not yet undertaken these on-line training modules, then please do so before the Zoom sessions and email your certificates to Alison. Information on how to complete the online courses can be found at https://www.rochester.anglican.org/safeguarding/courses-safeguarding/
