Church of England welcomes new safeguarding postgraduate qualification


A new safeguarding postgraduate qualification has been unveiled with the backing of the Church of England.

The University of Lincoln has worked with a range of key organisations including the Church of England to develop a new Postgraduate (PG) Certification in Safeguarding: Leading Safer Organisations.

The University has collaborated with the Church of England, The Methodist Church, Save the Children, ActionAid International, and Lincolnshire County Council to form the content of the course.

Intended to be transferable across all industries, the teaching encourages participants to explore their specific context and generate workable approaches, in turn implementing positive change within their businesses.

The Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, said: “I welcome wholeheartedly the opportunity the qualification in Leading Safer Organisations offers to explore good safeguarding practice and how we can all individually contribute to create safer organisations. 

“This course equips leaders with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to enhance the work already being done to embed safeguarding in all we do, and to make our organisations safe spaces for children, young people and vulnerable adults.  I hope many will be interested in the flexible study options that are available.”
