Safeguarding Training

Safeguarding Training Plan for 2017

The Diocese of Killaloe sees training and education as a priority. To maintain high standards and good practice it is essential that relevant Church Personnel, both paid and unpaid, receive appropriate safeguarding training. To this end all Church personnel who work with children are inducted into the Diocesan Policy and Procedures on Safeguarding Children when they begin work within Church organisations, with yearly updating of their skills and knowledge. The Diocesan Trainers and the Director of Safeguarding will provide training and updating of policies and procedures to Church Personnel. The Safeguarding Committee is responsible for overseeing the delivery and quality of the training programmes and identifying specific education and training needs.
