ESSENTIAL TRAINING FOR TRUSTEE AND STAFF


The out of school inspection will require certain evening/weekend educational bodies to be fully compliant with a number of standards to safeguard and protect children from harm, as well as ensure education is balanced and promotes British values and all staff are DBS checked. Charity registered bodies are also obliged to ensure the organisation is running according to Charity Commission guidelines.

MOSQUE RE-OPENING TRAINING FOR MOSQUE STAFF, VOLUNTEERS AND TRUSTEE


Community Foundation ran a one-day training course on the 4th July, to prepare mosque staff, volunteers and trustee with essential knowledge and skills in reopening mosque after the lockdown. The training was attended by representatives from various mosques in Birmingham and delivered by Nozmul Hussain Chief Executive of Community Foundation at the Jami Mosque and Islamic Centre in Small Heath. Participants learnt about all the things that needed to be done before reopening the mosque such as carrying out a risk assessment, drafting a Covid-19 policy and guidelines, making changes to premises and operating times to reduce risks. Participants also learnt about legal duties and role of trustee, staff and volunteers and keeping premises safe for employees and visitors. The session ended with some practical workshop on how to take temperature reading, crowd control whilst maintaining social distance and what to do if a visitor has Covid-19 symptoms.
