Virtual Safeguarding Leadership Training Overview

The course encourages thinking about safeguarding in relation to leadership and is a small group discussion based course with a maximum of 7 participants It takes approximately 10-12 weeks to complete the course and get certificate, allowing for time to complete tasks and reflect, with two 90-minute Zoom sessions.

Previous leadership training was 6 hours, so time is distributed differently to allow for self-learning and reflection. Dates and deadlines are provided for each course to help you plan for your training. The pre-session work allows for reflection and recording things to help you think things through and to enable full participation in the discussion-based sessions. It is not about producing academic style writing; some people have found bullet points helpful while others prefer a more formal style. Spelling and grammar are not the focus of the work. The pre course work is not intended to be a barrier to participation, so please contact Christine Lamb, Christine.lamb@peterborough-diocese.org.uk if you have any concerns about completing the training and if needed to work out a way to help you complete the course.

At present the courses are offered via Zoom, which many have found more convenient as it does not involve travel. This will be reviewed and safe ways to complete face to face training considered. The post course reflection, completed 4-6 weeks after the course, allows you to reflect on your learning from the course and think about the difference it has made to your ministry. Please note that the course is not complete until it has been signed off following the submission of the completed workbook.

** HEALTH WARNING regarding the BBC documentary: Exposed: The Church’s Darkest Secret which is to be viewed as part of the Leadership Pathway Safeguarding Training.
This documentary tells the story of the individuals who brought Bishop Peter Ball to justice; and the cover-up that went to the highest levels of the Church of England. The two-part documentary is emotionally moving and therefore must come with a health-warning as we are aware that for some it will be very difficult to watch and indeed for those who are themselves survivors may be too difficult. 

It may be that you would be more comfortable watching with someone else alongside you for support or that additional support may be needed before, during or after watching the documentary. 

For those for whom watching the documentary would be too difficult, please complete some of the recommended reading as listed on page 12 of the participant’s workbook that will be sent to you instead. 

We would like to assure you that there is support available for you from your Diocesan Safeguarding Team or from Safe Spaces.
