Overview

We take post ordination training (POT / IME2) very seriously and aim to make every effort to offer appropriate support and development opportunities as you begin ordained life. Post ordination training takes two forms.

  1. A series of study days, seminars and conferences, sometimes on a diocesan basis, but mostly within the context of Area curates gathering together during their first three or four years of ministry.
  2. An ongoing portfolio of work produced in conjunction with Training Incumbents and submitted to the Director of POT.

Area Information

**Post Ordination Training (POT) or Initial Ministerial Education (IME2): The terms are used interchangeably, as most dioceses now refer to the period of training following ordination as IME2. However, the term ‘Post Ordination Training (POT)’ continues to be used in London Diocese for philosophical reasons. When the change to ‘Initial Ministerial Education’ was made nationally, it was noted that there was actually a shift of focus from Education to Training when moving into curacy, the whole being seen in the context of life-long formation. It was decided at the time, therefore, to stay with the traditional terminology locally, whilst acknowledging the wider context.
