Completing the online Safeguarding Training takes at least 3-hours, although breaks are recommended, and you do not have to complete the training in one sitting. As the content is serious & will affect everyone differently, know that Pastoral Care is provided & you are encouraged to speak with Canon Katie in relation to your Safeguard Training.
