Right Approach Services
Right Approach offers a tailored consulting service designed to help your organisation implement the Child Safe Standards, and strengthen its child safety practice. We can help transform your organisation into one that keeps children and young people safe.
A unique feature of many of our training programs is that we use video scenarios. This popular feature gives participants the opportunity to witness a scenario and problem solve responses, giving them confidence to manage any future concerns they will face in their own workplace.
What our Clients Are Saying About Right Approach?
"Fabulous! Extremely interactive. Lots of real examples and scenarios given which made it easier to understand. Very informative, relevant, and very comfortable. The trainers were very knowledgeable, answered all our questions. Updates on the new laws, obligations and the examples given were eye opening/honest."
"Training was fantastic, we learnt so much especially around the reporting strategies for when staff fail to meet service child protection requirements, and the Child Safe Standards. The scenarios and interactive questions allowed the staff to think critically and work together to better understand what signs to look for when identified risks occur and the next steps to take to ensure children or young people are kept safe. The best part was learning about the reduce and remove strategies."
"This was excellent training Suzanne! You’ve done such a fantastic job with it. The real time scenarios and time for reflection and answering questions was very empowering to help me think about similar scenarios which may take place in the church environment and how to prevent them as well as recognise and respond. The 5 Rs were excellent and explained very clearly. The accompanying table outlining the legal requirements of reporting is invaluable. Thanks for such comprehensive foundational training."
"Fantastic, interesting, engaging course. Everyone loved it and the team were still talking and reflecting on in during breaks today. All staff members found this training very helpful and extremely interesting. The educators also really liked the fact, that they were able to join via Zoom. You delivered all the information so well and it was so engaging. I really do feel more confident about the whole topic even with the legal changes."
"Very interesting information. Great strategies explained to us. Very clear slides that was easy to follow and what we need to do to be compliant. Enjoyed hearing stories and factual information."
"Great training, great content – perfect! Everything about the training was amazing and well demonstrated. Very informative and easy to understand and process. Loved both presenters."
"It was a great opportunity for our team to receive child protection training this year with Right Approach, and Suzanne Arnold in particular. Believe me when I say that this is the first time my team has undertaken proper and respectable child protection training since we all completed it within our formal qualification studies."
"Training was fabulous. Very informative to learn to provide safe and inclusive environments and how to respond appropriately with confidence, understanding our responsibilities within the current legislative context and a step-by-step process to effectively respond to child harm."
"Amazing! Fantastic! Thank you for a great session. Very well presented. We gained a lot of knowledge and it was easy to follow and understand. Knowledgeable information was given in practical ways to understand and relate to. We were all interacting and it went over time but it was so good."
"Amazing job, great scenarios, really informative presentation, easy to understand and a great way to reassure us we are aware and confident to ensure that we understand all the information. Very friendly trainers. Interested in doing more on child protection."
"Amazing training. Really excellent. Really engaging and interesting – lots to think about. Presenters brought information about the laws that is otherwise not covered and opened up the whole concept in a different light. Both presenters were full of knowledge and experience – providing a safe and comfortable learning environment."

About Right Approach
My name is Suzanne Arnold and I owned and operated my own childcare centre for around 15 years. The Centre won a regional award for being the best and had a reputation as a centre of excellence across the region. I believe our focus on child protection and the rights of the child were both critical factors that defined our reputation. I have worked in a range of different settings since graduating from a Masters of Human Rights at Sydney University in 2013. Importantly the rights of the child underpin the Child Safe Standards. I founded Right Approach because I am passionate about supporting educators, and other staff, to build environments and cultures that are child safe. I have been working with experts in Australia and around the world for many years to build the capacity of executives, staff and volunteers to comply with the Child Safe Standards. Our training and consulting services can help transform your organisation into one which keeps children and young people safe.
