Safeguarding Leadership Learning

Everyone in a leadership position within the Parish needs to complete Safeguarding Leadership Learning. Basic and Foundation awareness are a prerequisite of this course.

The focus of the first session is the exploration of what effective leadership behaviour looks like in respect of safeguarding and connecting this to an understanding of how the culture of a Christian community protects people.

  • The people joining this pathway will all have responsibility for shaping the culture within their church context.
  • We will explore ideas such as the values and beliefs they need to have, and how will these be demonstrated in their behaviours. These issues will be explored in the first session through facilitated dialogue around four questions.
  • The session will be preceded by participants considering the same questions through personal reflection and recording and submitting their reflection(s) to the facilitators.
  • This reflection could also be supported through recommended reading which will be provided to participants.
  • The focus of the second session is exploring how to respond effectively to safeguarding concerns. The session aims to help people reflect on how the theology and beliefs of their faith harmonise with the beliefs and values underpinning good safeguarding practice.
