Diocese of Chichester Safeguarding

The National Safeguarding Team have completed a review of the C2 leadership safeguarding course. This course is still aimed at Leaders and promotes a learning journey for participants.

The Virtual Safeguarding Leadership Learning Pathway requires some 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. 

From July 2022 C2 Leadership Virtual Training will move to a learning management system called Moodle where workbooks, coursework, case study, certificates and meetings will be held.  Currently Clergy, Licensed Readers, Safeguarding Officers should complete this training. We will advise trainee ALM's when training is available for their role.
