Assessing and Managing Risk

Course aims:

The aim of this course is to explore how to put into practice a range of processes and procedures to help make your organisation safer for the people you serve.

Who is it for?

This course has been developed for those who have the responsibility for implementing safer recruitment processes in their organisations, whether local authorities, children's charities, community groups, churches or other organisations providing a service to children, young people and adults.  The course will build upon existing safeguarding knowledge so previous foundation level training is required in order to participate.

Course details:

This half-day course is for anyone who holds responsibility, oversight and decision-making powers within their church or organisation, usually in a leadership role. You will be equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to identify, assess and manage risk whilst supporting known offenders and those whose behaviour may be cause for concern. The interactive programme is delivered over a morning or afternoon.
