Training

The Interdenominational Protection Panel provides training to those who work directly with children, young people or vulnerable adults in our churches and those who are responsible for these activities (e.g. church trustees)

Our training is based on our current policies and practice as found in our Handbook. It aims to equip workers and volunteers and will help them to be familiar with current guidelines and know what to do if they are concerned about a situation or an individual. 

Safeguarding training is mandatory for all those who work or volunteer with children, youth, vulnerable adults and is necessary to meet the requirements the Charities Commission and usually your insurance policy.

Some sessions are noted below but if you would like to invite the Panel Training Officer to come and conduct a session in your area please contact the office.

  Here are some comments from people who have attended Panel training sessions:

"It was explained thoroughly and was easy to follow"

"No nonsense not sensationalised approach to serious matters - Worthwhile seminar - such an important topic"

"Best Safeguarding training I have attended- relevant, clear and not alarming"

"Clear and didn't feel too complex"

"The training was both clear and interesting. It has increased my understanding of abuse and how to deal with it."
