The National Safeguarding Training programme:
The Church has an ambition to ensure safeguarding flows from within the soul of the church and is at the centre of our faith, in our practice, in our worship, in our praying, and in our believing. The current Safeguarding Learning and Development Framework is implemented within the Diocese of Exeter. The courses incorporate theological principles and are characterised by a reflective learning style. There are four core safeguarding courses available via the National Safeguarding Training Portal. Please click on each course title to find out more about how to access the course:
