Training for Jesuits

The Jesuits in Britain provides safeguarding training for all its members, beginning in the Novitiate, and requires all Jesuits living and working in the Province to attend training courses at regular intervals. Safeguarding training is also required of those working with and for the Province who are in regular contact with children and vulnerable adults.

On-Line Training for all

The Catholic Church in England and Wales has worked with EduCare to make available an e-learning package that will raise awareness throughout the Catholic community in our countries. The e-learning package is part of the Church’s commitment to safeguarding, and is available to all members of the Catholic community free of charge.
