    • Members of the District Policy Committee
    • All presbyters or deacons with an active preaching or pastoral ministry including those supernumerary ministers who have pastoral care of a church
    • Those who are in paid employment or a voluntary role which includes leadership within the Methodist Church, which involves direct work with children, youth or vulnerable adults

    • Worship leaders
    • Safeguarding officer – church

    Warmly invited but not mandatory

    • Supernumerary ministers apart from those who have pastoral care of a church
    • It has not been possible to create a standard list. There should not be too many varied roles and responsibilities represented at the training since the material focuses on leadership responsibilities rather than general safeguarding awareness. However there needs to be flexibility for inclusion where this would be helpful. This decision making should form part of the responsibility of the District Safeguarding Group when planning the provision of Advanced Module day sessions, across the District.
