Awareness and training

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Please find below the link to online Basic Awareness training (C0) that all members are invited and encouraged to complete to better understand safeguarding issues.
You will be asked to register first and you should then proceed via the “Basic Awareness C0” tab. The online module will take you somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes depending on your existing level of awareness, knowledge and experience.
