The Leadership module replaces the old C2 and C3 training, and is a requirement for all those who have any leadership responsibility in the church.
All those with Bishop’s licence (Clergy, readers and Lay Ministers), Churchwardens, and many others who hold positions of leadership in work with children, young people or adults who may be at risk or are vulnerable must complete this course.
There is no bar to others completing this who don’t ‘qualify’, as increased awareness at this level helps to communicate the importance of safeguarding within the church community.
The Leadership module is a mixture of reading and preparation work, two ‘Zoom’ sessions, and some Review and Evaluation work.
