Baptist Together recommends that you renew your training at the appropriate level at least once every four years.
The Excellence in Safeguarding training courses have been designed specifically for Baptist churches to ensure their leaders and workers are able to undertake their roles in the best possible way. If you are looking for something to show to the whole church and to help children engage with safeguarding, there are excellent Level 1 materials available by clicking here:
Who should attend training? The training is for people who hold different roles within the church:
Deacons & Trustees - must do level 2 and level 3
Minister - must do level 2 and level 3
Designated Safeguarding Person - must do level 2 and level 3

Those working with Adults at Risk (e.g. pastoral visiting, lunch club for people with learning disabilities) - must do level 2
