IME2 aims to support and develop the vocation and ministry of newly ordained clergy (curates) in the first three years after ordination. It forms a bridge between their initial training, whether on a course or at a college, and the more autonomous ministerial responsibilities of Incumbency or as an SSM Associate Minister.
It looks to equip curates to provide the ordained ministry needed to implement the strategic vision of the Diocese for the future of the Church, in accordance with the national Learning Outcomes given by the House of Bishops for this stage of ministry.
More details of the Curate Training Programme and relevant documents are available below:
Training Incumbents are also supported in their role as the primary trainers for Curates see IME2 Training Incumbents Programme & Events.
