Please be aware that you must have attended a C1, C2 or C3 session delivered by The Church of England before you can attend a C5 refresher session.  If you have attended safeguarding training delivered by another organisation,  such as a school, you must still attend C1, C2 or C3 before you can attend this C5 refresher session.
