Safeguarding in an international context

Course description:

This course is for those working internationally and is based on the findings of our recent research into international Christian work. It will help you to understand your safeguarding responsibilities and improve safeguarding practice in your own context. This course is ideal for those who may oversee partnership relationships with organisations overseas, recruit and equip individuals to undertake mission trips to overseas partner projects, or for individuals undertaking mission trips themselves. We will explore the complexities and challenges of safeguarding in an international context and look at how to equip individuals effectively as well as how to build capacity.

Course details:

This interactive webinar is delivered over two consecutive sessions, each lasting 2.5 hours. Delegates will need to attend both sessions in order to complete the course. Modules one and two will be covered in session one, modules three and four will be covered in session two.

The course will be presented by one of our team of professional and experienced trainers and will include presentation slides, film clips and small group exercises to help delegates learn the content effectively. The session is delivered at a steady pace for those who are familiar with safeguarding terminology.
