Training

To clarify the training requirements for Junior Leaders, the Safe Ministry Board approved the following at it’s December 2016 meeting:

  • A junior leader is a person who has been appointed to a leadership role in children’s or youth ministry in a parish who is under 18 years of age.
  • In general it is more appropriate for a Junior Leader to complete the Safe Ministry Junior Leader Training Module instead of the Essentials course as a part of their training for their role.
  • However, once a person who has been a junior leader attains 18 years of age they must complete the Essentials course unless it was previously completed.
  • At the discretion of the rector or his delegate, a junior leader who is 16 or 17 years old but has greater leadership responsibilities than a junior leader would usually have (e.g. has some teaching responsibilities or has the maturity to be included in leader to child ratios), then that leader should complete the Essentials course.

As always, please contact the Safe Ministry Liaison person for any clarification.
