WMC: May 2017
Safeguarding — dates for the diary
A reminder that the Refresher Course for Creating Safer Space must be done this year by anyone who was trained five years ago and is continuing in their role.
Keith will be delivering this training, at Wantage on 4th May and at Wallingford on 27th June .
Both these evenings will be at 7:30pm and the sessions will last two hours.
These will be large-group sessions and we hope most of those needing the training will be able to attend on one of these dates.
The Creating Safer Space Foundation Module training will also be run by Keith.
The dates for these sessions are to be decided, but if you need the training, or are appointing new post-holders who will need it, please let Keith know.
