Safeguarding Training and Development Modules


The Core safeguarding learning pathways (Basic Awareness, Foundation and Leadership) have been developed as a modular programme which builds learning according to role.

These pathways should be completed in consecutive order until an individual has reached the required highest level of learning for their role.

Additional safeguarding learning pathways have been developed to further enhance safeguarding knowledge in specific practice areas, or for specific roles, these are the Specialist Training Courses as well as other Training delivered by the Safeguarding team.

The links and pages below show you what modules are available, whether you are required to have undertaken them, and directions for how to book your training place.

Support in accessing training

The Safeguarding Team recognise that participating in safeguarding training for someone who has personal experience in relation to safeguarding issues, can be difficult and emotive. Pastoral care during training means we have a responsibility to meet the spiritual, pastoral and welfare needs of all those attending and strive to create supportive and safe conditions to enable participation and engagement.

If you would value a confidential and supportive conversation to explore how training can be accessed in an environment that minimises upset and or discomfort for you, please contact one of the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisors whose details are on this page (clicking here).
