Basic and Foundation courses
Basic Awareness course
We encourage everyone to complete our online Basic Awareness course. It takes about one hour to complete and looks at how to spot signs of abuse and how to respond. It’s an excellent way to learn how to ensure your chaplaincy is a safe and healthy environment. This course is a prerequisite for all further training modules.

The Foundations course is required for everyone with safeguarding responsibilities, or if your church role requires you to be in regular contact with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults. It can also be accessed by anyone who wishes to build on the learning from the Basic Awareness course.
