The National Safeguarding Team has created a range of safeguarding learning pathways for people with roles in the Church of England to complete. Core safeguarding learning pathways (Basic Awareness, Foundation, Leadership and Senior Leadership) have been developed as a modular programme which builds learning according to role and therefore these pathways should be completed in consecutive order until an individual has reached the required highest level of learning for their role.
In addition to the core pathways, additional pathways have been developed to build on the core learning for some specific roles and safeguarding issues.
E-learning - Basic Awareness, Foundations, Safer Recruitment and People Management, and Raising Awareness of Domestic Abuse
Please note that whilst both the Basic Awareness and Foundations Pathways are available on the portal now, the Safer Recruitment and People Management and Raising Awareness of Domestic Abuse Pathways will be released later in 2021.
If you are involved in your local parish, speak to your Parish Safeguarding Officer or Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser about which safeguarding training pathways you need to complete. If you aren't sure of how to contact your Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, please see our map which will take you to your diocesan safeguarding website.
If you have problems with the e-learning system, email [email protected] and we will respond as soon as possible.
