About the seminars

Dear Clergy and Authorised Lay Ministers,
Please find below updated Professional Standards Seminars (PS) for 2019.

It is a requirement of Archbishop in Council that all clergy and lay ministers attend this seminar. Churchwardens and vestry members should also attend.   

Please note that these training seminars are different to that of the OH&S training that was run in 2015 and the current Child Safe Standards Seminars.  These seminars have been updated from the previous PSA11 training that most Clergy have attended.  Professional Standards Seminars should be completed every 3 years and anyone who has not attended a seminar in the past three year years should attend one in 2019.   

Professional Standards Seminars are facilitated by Ms Angela Cannon and are limited to 30 people. 
All persons wishing to attend must register via email to clearances@melbourneanglican.org.au 
Once registered - you will be sent an email advising of your registration and details of the day’s events.

Delegates will be required to sign the attendance sheet at the conclusion of the seminar to allow for entry into the Diocesan database.    

NB: If you have attended a Professional Standards Act seminar in the past three years you do not need to attend this seminar again. If you have not attended any – you are required to do so as soon as possible if you are in a ministry role.
