Who needs to have Safeguarding training?

In short, everyone who works for and volunteers for the Diocese of Derby needs some level of training.

This includes all clergy, readers, PtOs, church officers, PCC members, Derby Church House Staff, Deanery Administrators, parish officials, church volunteers and, of course, Parish Safeguarding Officers and Deanery Safeguarding Officers.

The training is divided into Core and Specialist Modules. The Derby Diocese Safeguarding Training Matrix 2020 shows which training is required and which is recommended for a variety of roles and can be downloaded for reference. This is subject to regular change as the National Safeguarding Team and the House of Bishops respond to recent reports and implement changes.

The five modules which are most usually needed and are listed below. Some of these are available online or delivered within the Diocese through ‘Zoom’ sessions. We are currently not able to deliver any Safeguarding training in ‘face-to-face’ sessions.
