To provide safeguarding training for employees & volunteers in local churches so that they can undertake their work with confidence while following best practise.
We provide the following safeguarding training:
- Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training – for everyone working with children/vulnerable adults
- Employee Training – for employees of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Ireland
- Disclosure Clerks Training – for local church disclosure clerks
Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training
Before you can commence working with children and/or vulnerable adults you have completed the Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training, in addition to having completed your Garda Vetting.
To do this you will need to:
- complete the Introduction to Children First E-Learning Programme, and
- return your PDF certifcate to us on completion of the course, by emailing it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can do this Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training at any time. You do not have to wait until your Vetting application has been submitted.
You may also have completed this Children First E-Learning Programme by request of another organisation. If you have, you do not have to do the E-Learning programme again, so long as your Certificate is dated within the last 3 years. You will need to send us a copy of your Certificate.
Your Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training will expire 3 years after the date on your E-Learning certificate. At that point, you will be requested to complete the training again.
This bespoke training is provided for part- or full-time employees of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Ireland, and is available on request.
Disclosure Clerk Training
Every local church must elect a Disclosure Clerk. This person is responsible for the administrative processing of Garda Vetting applications and making sure every volunteer working with children and/or vulnerable adults has completed their Level 1 Basic Safeguarding Training. The Disclosure Clerk will liaise with us about all vetting applications.
