Safeguarding training calendars

Congregational Safeguarding training is provided for Safeguarding Coordinators, Kirk Sessions and Volunteers. Below is a list of Church of Scotland presbyteries and the training (Coordinator/Volunteer or Kirk Session) that is currently planned. You can see what is offered in your presbytery or nearby presbyteries…

How is training arranged?

All Congregational Safeguarding Training (Volunteer, Coordinator and Kirk Session) is organised at presbytery level and not directly through the Safeguarding Service. The Safeguarding Service is not always informed of training that is taking place so please get in touch with your presbytery contact If you require Safeguarding training and to find out more.

Who should attend?

All volunteers doing regulated work with Children or Protected Adults should attend Volunteer (Part 1 Coordinator) Training. All new coordinators are required to attend Volunteer (Part 1 Coordinator) Training and Part 2 Coordinator Training. Members of the Kirk Session should attend Kirk Session Training.

If you have any further questions please get in touch with Noelle Maye, Safeguarding Training Officer.
