Role Training for Local Safeguarding Representatives

The National Board has been contacted by a number of Church authorities who have recruited local safeguarding representatives but who have been unable to train them due to the ongoing pandemic.  As a result the National Board are offering to do this online in groups of 9 people on a date and time that suits the participants.

The training will focus on the role of the local representative including the local audit and assisting the parish priest or local superior with implementing effective safeguarding practice.  The training will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams in groups of up to 9 participants, and will be charged at 35 euro per person.  As training will be delivered online it is essential that each participant has access to a device with a camera and microphone.

Please note that this training is not a replacement for the full days training offered by safeguarding trainers registered with the National Board, all local representatives will still be required to attend this when training restarts following the health crisis.
