The Children Act 2014 requires most organisations to have a Child Protection Policy. A vital element is the policy should support staff in being able to identify and report child abuse concerns. However, if staff don't learn the knowledge and skills needed to apply this requirement, everything remains theoretical.
Aotearoa holds some shocking child vulnerability and abuse statistics, and organisations need to be able to support a child, young person or family in need and ensure their organisation is free from risks of abuse. This eLearning is critical for all organisations supporting children and their families and can serve as new or refresher learning. It can:
- Serve as mainstream child protection training for frontline staff and regular/long-term volunteers.
- As foundation learning for staff with specific safeguarding responsibilities, e.g. Safeguarding Staff, Safeguarding Champions, etc.
Based on the main Rs of child protection, this engaging, interactive, and highly well-evaluated eLearning will guide Learners through:
- Recognising Concerns
- Responding to Concerns
- Reporting/Referring Concerns
- Recording Concerns
Learners also explore the fundamentals of creating a safer organisation for everyone.
