​Help provide a safe environment for all

Learning Manager's Safeguarding Essentials course covers important information about Safeguarding for Catholic organisations, including duty of care responsibilities to protect all people who come in contact with the church and in particular children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm.

Learners will be taught to define who is a child and who is a vulnerable adult, identify different types of abuse, and recognise potential abuse risk factors. They will also be taught about key safeguarding measures that can be put in place within your organisation to help prevent abuse occuring or reduce opportunities for it to occur.

The course is comprised of six sections that are completed online at the learner's convenience, with an assessment and results provided at the end of the course. This training has been designed for church workers including those working in ministry, employed, or volunteering.
