Steve Bryant will kindly be delivering the Webnet level 2 and 3 safeguarding training again for us. If you are involved with any children’s/youth work or work with adults at risk at CBC you should be attending a level 2 course every four years.

Please note:

  • Volunteers who did the online training in 2021 will need to refresh their training this year.
  • It is Webnet’s preference that volunteers attend their church specific course even if training is provided through other workplaces.

Please, could you get in touch with either to let her know you would like to attend or if you would like to check whether your training has run out. Elspeth will also be in touch with people directly who require the training. Please put the date in your diaries if you can and need to attend. Thanks.
