Child Safe training plays an important role in keeping kids in organisations safe from abuse and harm. These online courses were developed with the input of Professor Stephen Smallbone of Griffith University, an expert in understanding and preventing sexual violence and abuse.
Topics covered include:
- Policies and procedures
- Organisational culture
- Risk management
- Reporting allegations
- Recruitment processes
- The Working With Children Check
We offer a suite of free Child Safe eLearning packages, which include:
- Child Safe eLearning course
- SAFESpace eLearning course (for the disability sector)
- Child Safe eLearning course (NESA endorsed for teachers and educators)
- SAFESpace eLearning course (for the disability sector) (NESA endorsed for teachers and educators)
If online learning does not suit your needs, or you have a group of people needing to be trained, we also offer face-to-face workshops on the same topics.
