The St Paul’s Safeguarding Training policy sets out details of the grace period provided to allow people who need Safeguarding training to continue or start a role before the training is completed.
It is recognised that for many who perform these roles, this training requirement may be seen as an additional burden. The contributions made by volunteers are very much appreciated and is deeply valued.
St Paul’s wishes to help volunteers to manage this extra requirement as well as fulfilling its moral and legal duty to ensure safeguarding training is completed by those that require it.
To accomplish this, this policy grants a period of grace to each person who requires safeguarding training.
While this policy is being implemented there will be an exceptional grace period until the 31stOctober 2018, this is to allow extra time for the requirements to be communicated to those who require accreditation and so that they may be supported and encouraged through these changes.
After the 31stOctober 2018 the following grace periods will apply:
The C0 module must be completed within 1 calendar month of starting a role that requires it.
C1 & C2 accreditations must be achieved within 3 calendar months of starting a role which requires them.
If the required accreditation is not achieved within this grace period, then the individual will not be able to perform the role until such time as they are correctly accredited.
