Diocese of Chichester Safeguarding


The Church of England’s National Safeguarding Team have developed a new version of the Leadership training, which replaces the version that has been running nationwide since 2020

This course is aimed at those in a Leadership role and promotes a learning journey for participants. Clergy, Licensed Readers, Safeguarding Officers, employed youth/family workers and ALM's should complete this training.

The Virtual Safeguarding Leadership Learning Pathway requires pre-course work to be completed. The reason for this is that the Pathway encourages participants to engage in a process of reflective learning. The pre-course work should take approximately two hours. 

This training is completed via a learning management system called Moodle where workbooks, coursework, Zoom links, case study and certificates are accessed.
