Foundation Module Safeguarding Training (2020 ed)

The Creating Safer Space (CSS) Foundation Module 2020 Edition replaces both the Foundation Module 2016 Edition and the Foundation Refresher Module 20116 Edition; and is designed to serve as both a basic starting course and a refresher course.

The course aims to increase safeguarding awareness, so that the church can exercise its duty of care to all. The Required Attendance List provides a thorough breakdown of the roles that should attend this training. 

Training materials for attendees can be accessed via the links below. Foundation Module trainers will need to access more detailed information available on the Trainers Only section of the Methodist church's website.

Foundation Module training sessions are not arranged by the District and are coordinated by each circuit.


We recognise that there are some circuits unable to facilitate training as they do not have the required trainers in their midst. We encourage circuits to work together and share resources so that we can ensure that all persons and churches are fully equipped to safeguard effectively. 

The District will endeavour to publish the dates and times of any Foundation Level courses. Please refer to the Training page for further details.
