Child Protection for voluntary work in Church, which level of course do I need?
by Pat D
I am going to start some voluntary work with children in my local Church. The work involves helping to run the Sunday school activities with the youth, aged about nine to eleven. I won't be on my own but will be with a group of other parent helpers.
We will mainly be doing things like drawing, making things and playing games, running around and stuff like that.
We will also do some activities during the week in the evenings for about an hour. My question is related to Safeguarding, so that I have all the up to date training.
I don't want to be in a situation where if something happened in terms of safeguarding, I wouldn't know what to do or or who to speak to.
Also, I know that we have a Child Protection Officer in the Church. I think they are supposed to look after this subject, but I am just writing to double check.
Please can you let me know which Child Protection courses I should take and which levels. Do I need to do a course somewhere or can I take a course online?
I will be grateful for any help that you can give to me.
