Job description

The Church of England is on a journey to become “safer”. The Church’s vision is to achieve a paradigm shift in which safeguarding becomes part of the DNA of the organisations that comprise it. “Safeguarding learning” has a crucial role to play in achieving this vision.

“Safeguarding learning” is more than training people on procedures. Rather, its primary aim is to develop the culture, beliefs, understanding and relationships which are necessary for good safeguarding behaviours.

The National Safeguarding Team is responsible for designing a suite of safeguarding learning pathways which are delivered by local safeguarding trainers in the dioceses, or by the NST itself.

The NST is introducing a model of learning in which the focus is on transformation; connecting with participants at the level of their beliefs and values so that deeper behavioural change is achieved.

This involves a move away from class-room teaching to small group engagement where self-reflexivity and dialogue are key learning methods.

This post is based in the National Safeguarding Team which leads and supports safeguarding activity across the Church.

Please see a few of the main responsibilities below:

  • Leading the facilitation of the Senior Leadership Virtual Safeguarding Pathway sessions for the leadership teams of the Church’s 42 dioceses and 42 cathedrals, together with sessions for other groups of senior leaders.
  • Bringing to the sessions ideas and principles from systemic theory and practice relevant to leadership, organisational culture and development of self.
  • Creating a trusting space within the groups to enable participants to share safely, and to be responsive to any triggering experienced by participants.
  • Assessing the impact of the pathway based on the evaluation methodology that has been created.

Please see a few of the requirements for the ideal candidate:

  • Able to facilitate groups in a way that ensures maximum engagement by participants, and promotes rich dialogue through which meaning and wisdom are created by the group.
  • Able to facilitate groups in a way which encourages self-reflexivity.
  • Experience of safeguarding work with children and/or adults.
  • Experience of facilitating senior leadership groups, including in respect of safeguarding.
  • Able to inspire the trust, confidence and commitment of others.
  • Personal authority, gravitas and confidence – able to influence and persuade at all levels and with a range of stakeholders.

Please note this is a fixed-term contact of 18 months

Please see job description attached for full details
