THE VIDEO WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE TO WATCH AFTER MARCH 31ST
We are really pleased to be able to bring you the Excellence in Safeguarding Update film from the Baptist Union of Great Britain. This is a temporary measure until we are able to return to face to face training and we will make sure that all churches are made aware as soon as it is possible for us to resume our normal training schedule.
If you have attended one of our training courses before, we hope that you find the film of help as an update and reminder. If you are new to safeguarding in your church, your DPS will also give you a copy of our Gateway to Safeguarding booklet and your church safeguarding policy and procedures to help you get started.
This Safeguarding Update film covers the key points of both Level 2 and Level 3 training and is accompanied by a Resources Pack that you can download as a PDF. You don’t need to have the pack to hand when you watch the film, but please take time to read it afterwards to add to your understanding. It includes specific guidance about the impact of coronavirus and the ways in which churches might respond to safeguarding concerns.
The film lasts for 90 minutes and there is a break point in the middle. You are welcome to watch the whole film in one go, or you may prefer to split it into two sections over two days. Throughout the film there are four ‘Stop and Consider’ points that encourage you to pick up paper and pen and reflect on the themes that have been covered as well as thinking about safeguarding practice in your church. At the end of the film you will be asked to think about action points for you and your church, and you might helpfully share these with your church’s Designated Person for Safeguarding.
Having watched the film, we ask that you complete and submit the feedback form on the same page. Once we have received a feedback form we will send you a certificate to confirm that you have completed the training.
We ask Churches to pay an administration charge of £5 per person.
If you have any questions following the training we will be running Question and Answer sessions. These will run over Zoom, last for 45 minutes and be run by one of our trainers. If you would like to take up this opportunity following the film please use the registration form that you will be directed to after submitting your feedback form.
If you are booking training for a group, but but not undertaking the training yourself please click here for instructions as to how to avoid being charged for an extra place.
