TNG Volunteer Appointment Process

This page outlines and provides the forms needed for the process of appointing a new team member of The Next Generation Ministry workforce.

Before an adult member of CCiL is appointed to volunteer in any of our Kids Church or Youth Ministry groups, s/he will be invited to observe over a number of weeks by the relevant ministry group’s Team Leader.

If they then invite the candidate to apply to be appointed in a serving role, i.e. Kids Church Helper, Teacher, or Youth Leader, the following process must be followed.


Part 1: Application

Step 1. Read The TNG Ministry Overview Document (click to open in a new tab)

Step 2. Complete the Application Form and return this to the TNG Pastoral Team via the Team Leader.

Step 3. If the application is satisfactory, you may be invited for an interview to allow the ministry leaders to get to know you, and for you to ask any questions about the role.


Part 2: Vetting & Disclosure Check

Step 1. Complete the Self Declaration Form and return this whilst retaining page 3 for your own reference.

Step 2. Submit an online application for an enhanced disclosure check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) by following the instructions on our DBS Applicant Info Sheet. This is processed by ThirtyOne:Eight – formerly the Churches Child Protection and Advisory Service (CCPAS).

Step 3. Verify your identity in order for the check to be processed, by showing the lead recruiter (as named on the Self Declaration Form in step 1) original copies of three documents according to the ID Documents Guide.

Step 4. Your check will be processed and the results will be shared with the lead recruiter. Your DBS certificate will be sent directly to your home address: retain this for your records and note that you may be asked to produce this document in the future.


Part 3: Safeguarding Training

Complete the online CCiL Safeguarding Basic Training course by following these steps:

  • Join the course on Google Classroom.

  • Your progress will be tracked. Please ensure all sections 1-8 are complete.
