Diocesan Leadership
Professional Development Program 2021

Welcome to the Professional Standards and Safeguarding Professional Development Program for 2021!

While the professional development program had to be suspended in 2020 due to COVID-19, we are back in 2021 with a range of options that we hope you will find useful and interesting. Given that COVID restrictions have not been lifted completely, all modules (unless otherwise stated) will be conducted online via Zoom for the first half of the year. If it is possible to resume face-to-face options in the second half of the year we will circulate an updated calendar with venue details. As such, please be prepared for the possibility of this. We will endeavour to provide as much notice as possible in the event of this change.

As with previous years, all persons in leadership positions in the diocese are required to undertake a minimum of 10 units of professional development in the areas of professional standards and safeguarding per calendar year. The calendar in the Diocesan Leadership Professional Development Program 2021 and the Additional Diocesan Leadership Professional Development Program Modules 2021 documents contain the options that are being provided by the diocese in the coming year.

There are a variety of different modules which will run this year and we encourage you to read the module descriptions on pages 4-5 of the document before registering to ensure that the content of the module will be beneficial to your ministry/work. Registration is essential. Only persons who have registered for the modules will receive an email prior to the event with the Zoom link.
