The Child Safe Foundational workshop is designed to act as a child protection refresher to assist with NQS compliance for those who have completed the CHCPRT001 course. The workshop addresses NSW reporting requirements. However the remainder of the workshop is applicable for all states and territories. Participants will be assisted to understand their reporting obligations within the current legislative context, including mandatory, reportable conduct, & duty of care. The workshop covers various types of child abuse and neglect, including identifying signs and indicators of child abuse and neglect, and understanding the dynamics of sexual offending and grooming. A unique feature of this training program is that we video acting of a real workplace situation. The popular and highly engaging feature of this training program gives participants the opportunity to problem solve a real scenario. Participants get the chance to practice what they’ve learnt, helping them to feel confident to manage any future child abuse issues they will face in their own workplace, and prevent child abuse in the workplace.
