  • Minister - must do level 2 and level 3;

  • Designated Safeguarding Person - must do level 2 and level 3;

What is available? There are three levels of training available.  You can see the training dates already arranged below.   If you have sufficient numbers we can deliver the training in your church - please contact the Association Administrator. If your church hosts a training session, some free places are available.

 

  • Level 1: This is a video for all people who attend your church. An all- age-video is available here and  a church meeting version here .

  • Level 2: Covers responsibilities to children and Adults at Risk, and is for all those who work, either paid or voluntarily, with these groups – A morning course

  • Level 3: Specific training for Deacons/Trustees, Ministers, Designated People, Children’s/Youth and Pastoral Leaders – an afternoon’s course to follow from Level 2 in the morning. BUGB level 2 training must be completed before level 3 training is undertaken. There will be a free place for the minister, if a certain number of a church's trustees attend on the same day.
