Safeguarding Training

Training for Tower Captains. There are several vacancies on two C2 courses for Tower Captains and other lead ringers These are bespoke courses run by Greg Barry, Rochester Diocese Safeguarding Trainer, in cooperation with KCACR, tailored to cover the ringing situation. All those attending will be Tower Captains, Vice Captains and trainers – i.e. those who are required to have a clear DBS check. Ringers from any part of Kent may apply to attend, i.e. from Dioceses other than Rochester.

The courses are at:

Hoo St Werburgh on Monday 1 October, 1pm – 4pm

Lamberhurst on Saturday 1 December, 10am – 1pm

Please contact David Grimwood, KCACR Training Officer for more details and to apply.

Training for all ringers

Any ringer wishing to improve his or her knowledge of safeguarding is encouraged to complete the online courses C0 and C1. Access to these is via the Safeguarding Training section in your Diocesan website.

Please note that it is not the policy of any of our Dioceses to require ringers to undertake this except for Tower Captains as a preparation for undertaking C2. Would Tower Captains please contact me for advice should a PCC Safeguarding Officer suggest all ringers undertake one of these courses.
