Creating Safer Space
Foundation Module Online Safeguarding Course

North Kent Circuit is to pilot online training for the Foundation Module.

The whole course is 3 hours long and will be divided into two 1½ hour Zoom trainings. We are offering training on either two weekday evenings or on a Saturday morning and afternoon. It is not possible to mix the evening and Saturday trainings.

It is essential for participants to attend both sessions of either Training 1 or Training 2.

Training 1 Tuesday 8 September 7.00 — 8.30pm
and Thursday 10 September 7.00 — 8.30pm

Training 2 Saturday 12 September 10.30 — 12.00
and Saturday 12 September 1.30 — 3.00

The Creating Safer Space Foundation Module 2020 training will help you:

  • appreciate how safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and fundamental to the culture of a flourishing Church
  • have a better understanding of good safeguarding practice within the Methodist Church, and understand its unique position in creating a safe space for everyone
  • promote awareness and extend an inclusive welcome to those who have experienced abuse
  • recognise, respond, record and refer relevant concerns about the safety and welfare of a child or adult, and recognise blocks to good practice
  • learn from evidence from the Methodist Past Cases Review (2015-17) and note the current national context, e.g. the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) 

    The training's overall aim is to increase safeguarding awareness, so the Church can exercise its duty of care to all: its members, office-holders and anyone who comes through its doors.  We create a safer Church by developing your understanding of, and confidence in, our safeguarding processes and your individual place within these processes

    Please contact as soon as possible to book a place.

    Please note that there are a limited number of places for each training.
