Formation and Training

Formation and Training

The National Office for Professional Standards provides opportunities for training in safeguarding practices of volunteers and employees within the Catholic Church that are specific to the roles carried out in the work of the Church. There is an expectation that all volunteers and employees will undergo trainings at the appropriate level.

Included here is ‘Integrity in Ministry’ which contains principles and standards expected of those in Church ministry. This document is intended for Catholic clergy and religious due to the leadership and trust that they hold within the community.

This set of documents also includes a policy for guidance in safe recruitment, a basic code of conduct, a volunteer agreement that incorporates an opportunity for basic induction and other documents to assist with formation and training.
