As churches we have a responsibility to ensure that all of our staff and volunteers are both competent and confident in fulfilling their safeguarding duties. One of the changes in emphasis over more recent years has chhe a change in focus from knowledge to competence.
The aim of the competency framework is to help you to think through whether staff and volunteers can demonstrate the appropriate competencies and also to provide a framework from which to develop a plan for training, awareness raising and the development of the knowledge and skills that they need.
You can download our competency framework below. To download the framework you will require a membership. If you do not have a membership, you can sign up for a free account here
