“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

“The best way to predict the future is to create it!”


We need a

Training and Development Officer

We are looking to appoint a part time Training and Development Officer to support the new Development Team along with our fantastic volunteers. This post is funded up until March 2016 and is initially for two days a week working flexible hours.

You will be required to equip staff with the knowledge, practical skills and motivation to carry out work-related tasks. Support training sessions in each of our eight regions and arrange for third party trainers to deliver specialist training as required.


As the Training and Development Officer you will help with the ongoing, long-term improvement of employees' skills, enabling them to fulfill their potential within the organisation. Your role will also encompass the training and development of our Regional Training Officers and National volunteers.  CLCGB require a strategic rather than reactive training approach, assessing the skills and knowledge within CLCGB and determining what training is needed to grow and retain these skills.

Areas of work

The nature of the training and development role is linked with CLCGB professional staff, regional training officers, and skills training days, examples of which are:

  • Identifying training and development needs within CLCGB Regiments/Battalions through job analysis, appraisal schemes and regular consultation with the Project manager, Regional Development Workers and the Chief executive.
  • Keeping within agreed training budgets and assessing the return on investment
  • Working in a team to produce programmes that are relevant to a vibrant organisation
  • Developing effective induction programmes for new volunteers.
  • Producing training materials for courses.
  • Effectively publicise the training programmes to all groups within the CLCGB
  • Managing the delivery and evaluation of training and development programmes.
  • Monitoring and reviewing the progress of Young leaders, Junior Leaders, Probationary Officers and volunteer leaders.
  • Ensuring that statutory training requirements are met.
  • Keeping up to date with developments in training by reading relevant journals, going to meetings and attending relevant courses.
  • Having an understanding of e-learning techniques, and where relevant, being involved in the creation and/or delivery of e-learning packages.
  • Have a working knowledge of our current e learning MOODLE and delivery of accredited training in line with ABC- Certificate in Youth Work
  • Prepare and deliver quarterly reports on all aspects of training
