Safeguarding training calendars

Congregational Safeguarding training is provided for Safeguarding Coordinators, Kirk Sessions and Volunteers. To view our current training sessions available, see the calendar below.

How is training arranged?

All Congregational Safeguarding Training (Introductory, 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 Introductory Safeguarding Training (Part 1 Coordinator) Training. All new coordinators are required to attend Introductory Safeguarding Training (Part 1 Coordinator) Training and Part 2 Coordinator Training. Members of the Kirk Session should attend Kirk Session Training. Safeguarding Panel members can attend specific Safeguarding Panel Training or Safeguarding Coordinator Training depending on what is available in their presbytery.

If you have any further questions please email the Safeguarding Training Officer.
