Safeguarding Training

Home » News » Safeguarding Training

Liz George is planning to lead Safeguarding training in September.

There is a responsibility for all who work with children, young people or vulnerable adults to attend the Methodist training if the work is being done in the name of Alton Methodist Church. This includes all who may have already attended Brigade or other training. In the light of a review into historic child abuse within churches nationally, the Methodist Connexion has now reviewed policies and procedures and have requested all who have previously done the training to attend refresher training. This includes updated advice on record keeping.

Anyone is welcome to attend; safeguarding the vulnerable is actually a whole community responsibility. You only need to attend one of the evening sessions either Foundation or Refresher.

Thursday 7th September 7.15 — 9.45pm will be Foundation Training for those who have not previously attended any Child Protection or Safeguarding training.

Thursday 14th September 7.15 -9.45pm Refresher training including information about procedures for record keeping. Those who have attended Methodist training before or those who have done BB/GB or other Safeguarding training in the last 2 years are welcome to attend this session.

Please sign up on the church notice board or let Liz George know if you are able to attend.
I promise to do my best to make it relevant and not to make it death by Powerpoint!
