The ‘Keeping Children and Vulnerable people safe’ online training course has been developed by experts in child safety and risk management to provide basic training on key issues relating to care and safety of children and vulnerable people at a personal level in a community organisational and institutional context.
Recently our government has endorsed the National Child Safety Standards including Standard number seven which reads:
Staff and volunteers are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and awareness to keep children and young people safe through ongoing education and training.
If you are working with children or young people in any context you need to make sure you have done child safety training which covers what child maltreatment is, how to respond if a child discloses abuse to you and how to report that abuse. These are fundamentals when it comes to child safety. The training course we have designed covers these three topics and more.
We invite you to take this 85-minute online mobile-friendly course and be child safe. Don’t wait for an incident to occur and not be able to respond appropriately because children’s wellbeing should be our highest priority.
You probably see yourself as a wonderful leader of children and that’s great. You wouldn’t have volunteered or gone for the role you are in with children if you didn’t right? But how much do you really know about leading children? See if you can answer yes to these questions.
If you answered yes to ALL of these congratulations you understand some of what it means to care for and lead children we would still encourage you to do this training as it will be very beneficial to you in your current and future roles with children. If you answered NO to any of these it is important you do this training to get you up to speed with what you need to know in caring for and leading the children as part of your current roles. Gone are the days we can just put our hand up and volunteer in the local sporting club, there are certain requirements in legislation, but also in duty of care to make sure the children are in safe environments.
