Child Safety for Governance and Leadership

We are proud to be New Zealand's only provider of child safeguarding and protection training specifically tailored to supporting Governance and Senior Leadership. 

Identifying how child safety relates to Governance and Leadership roles and responsibilities can be challenging. Yet it is vital, as Governance and Leadership are the foundation and drive for an organisation's child safeguarding practices and culture.

This engaging and informative 1.5 hour course will guide Executive Staff through their particular child safety roles and responsibilities in relation to the core requirements of being a Child Safe Organisation as per the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.

Although this course is tailored to supporting Governance and Leadership, it can also serve as a great awareness course for organisation staff in designated safeguarding and protection roles or with specific child safeguarding and protection responsibilities.
