The Archdiocese of Brisbane has two safeguarding training modules.
Below are links to access the training modules online.
IMPORTANT – Archdiocesan clergy and employees will be allocated the relevant safeguarding training via the internal Arch e-Learn online training system. Training completed by Archdiocesan clergy and employees via this website will not be recognised for compliance.
Safeguarding Essentials (Level 1)
The Safeguarding Essentials module provides an overview of how safeguarding is undertaken in the Archdiocese. It is for those individuals who do not work directly with children or adults-at-risk. The module takes about 30 minutes to view.
Safeguarding Training (Level 2)
The Safeguarding training module is for clergy and others who work with children or adults-at-risk. It takes about 45 minutes to complete.
New Laws to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse
The Queensland Government has implemented new laws to increase the protection of children from sexual abuse and which place new legal obligations on all adults in Queensland. It is important that all Archdiocesan volunteers have an understanding of those legal obligations.
Click on the below link to watch a short presentation on the new laws. The presentation aims to raise awareness of the laws, and the process for reporting child sexual abuse suspicions that arise while working for the Archdiocese.
Confirmation of Completion
A Confirmation of Completion form must be submitted to register completion of the training.
Alternatively a hardcopy ‘Safeguarding Training – Confirmation of Completion Form’ can be downloaded by clicking on the below link. Once the form is completed it will need to be verified (signed) by the relevant parish, ministry or service and then recorded in the Archdiocesan information system.
IMPORTANT – Completed safeguarding training that is not properly registered will not be recognised for compliance.
Feedback on safeguarding training is welcomed. Below is a link to an online training evaluation form.
