Clarification of HSE training in relation to NBSCCCI Training Materials
Following a meeting with Boyd Dodds (HSE National Lead for mplementation of Children First) NBSCCCI can confirm that HSE plans for modular training written by HSE and delivered by HSE trained trainers will not supercede NBSCCCI current training materials .
Boyd Dodds confirmed to us that their proposals for specific targeted training will be put in place to support implementation of Children First in organisations who do not have such training already in place. Clearly we will review our training materials to ensure that they are compliant with new legislation when it is implemented. HSE also plan to quality assure all training materials and NBSCCCI will put forward our materials for a quality mark, ensuring that training by the NBSCCCI continues to be recognised for its quality by the HSE. Any updates to the training will be delivered to current and newly registered trainers as appropriate following the introduction of new legislation.
NBSCCCI and the HSE will meet regularly to ensure greater clarity around future training so that the current confusion around the perception that HSE will require Catholic Church personnel to undergo HSE training will not reoccur.
