Safeguarding

Going forward there will be three options for Advanced training:

E:Learning - Online through the MCBX platform

A learning experience which allows the learner to move through the course at their own pace. With a facilitated Gathered Session at the end of the learning via Zoom. Booking for this option will now be through Eventbrite, where delegates will first book onto a gathered course, which will generate their registration to the e:learning site automatically. These dates will be advertised shortly.

Streamed Training Events

Designed to offer a face-to-face experience for more people across the District at once, the Advanced Module (Live-Streamed) allows leaders in your church to do this training all together, but without needing to travel as far. Teaching will be offered over a live-stream, delivered via YouTube, with space for conversations in your local context, and ways to interact with the trainers.

This option is open to Circuit Safeguarding officers to host in Circuit venues. Individuals will not be able to register and do course alone

Advanced – Creating Safer Space

Streamed Training Event explained and booking guidance

Designed to offer a face-to-face experience for more people across the District at once, the Advanced Module (Live-Streamed) allows leaders in your church to do this training all together, but without needing to travel as far. Teaching will be offered over a live-stream, delivered via YouTube, with space for conversations in your local context, and ways to interact with the trainers.

We will offer the Advanced Module Training as a live stream. This includes:

  • All the teaching content, taught in-front of a live class, with breaks for discussion and coffee in your local venues

  • A way to interact with the training team live during question and answer sessions

  • A register sheet to enable your attendees to have a certificate of completion. This will be sent to them directly, or to yourself if for later distribution, via email

Host churches will offer: 

  • A warm, comfortable venue for 4.5hrs of training

  • A chaplain for attendees

  • A Circuit Safeguarding coordinator/officer for local questions and answers

  • An a way to show and interact with a live-stream, suitable for the size of your group. The solution you use depends on the size of the group: for a 5 or below, a TV with a laptop plugged in may suffice. A larger group may benefit from using a projector and PA system connected to a computer. Regardless, a reliable internet connection will be required throughout the event

  • Printed or electronic copies of the Participant resources available here: https://www.methodist.org.uk/safeguarding/training/advanced-module-2023-edition-participants/advanced-module-2023-edition-materials/.

How often should I do training?

There were changes last year in relation to the frequency that training is required:

  • There will no longer be refresher training

  • If you have only completed foundation training, then you will have to take the course every four years

  • If you have completed foundation and advanced training, then there will only be the need to retake the advanced training every four years from the date of first completion of the advanced training course
