CEDP Teachers who volunteer within Parishes:

Within the Diocese of Parramatta there is an agreement with Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) in regards to the Safeguarding Training of its teachers who volunteer in their parish communities.

We ask that teachers working within CEDP schools in the Diocese present their current (last 12 months) certificates of completion for their child protection training.

Their Parish Office will note that training and its date for their records and acknowledge the satisfactory completion of Mandatory Modules 1 and 2.

Teachers within CEDP schools will then be asked to complete the third mandatory module ‘Safeguarding Adults at Risk’.

For the non-compulsory training – that is the additional 4 points (2 separate modules) that managers, team leaders, those who directly work with children and have been identified as requiring 10 points, you can apply for recognition of that training provided you can produce the following:

  • Course description/name/outline - for example, courses on domestic violence, working in the disability sector, child protection course or counselling courses)
  • Proof of attendance and date
  • Who provided the training? (Name of company, person, institution)

  • Date completed (within in the last 12 months)
