Bite Sized Training

  /    /  Bite Sized Training

OVERVIEW

Right Approach offers a range of bite sized training options to assist with implementation of the Child Safe Standards. Bite sized training helps organisations easily fit learning into their busy schedules as an experienced faciltator joins a staff or leader’s meeting to deliver the training.

The spotlight is well and truly on designing solutions that deliver the most value to an organisation. The Rapid Learning Institute states 94% of Learning and Development professionals believe that bite sized online learning modules were preferred by their learners.

A unique feature of Right Approach is that we encourage participants to practice application of training content to enhance their learning experience and improve transfer of training. In a number of our programs, we video staff re-enacting a child harm concern in the workplace and encourage participants to problem solve responses to the situation to prevent child harm.

Topics include:

UNDERSTANDING VICTIM AND PERPETRATOR STEREOTYPES

Supports Child Safe Standard 7

This training looks at victim and perpetrator stereotypes, and how these stereotypes can lead to failure to identify, investigate and report abuse. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse states that “combatting stereotypes by effective training and education is central to preventing sexual abuse”.

Facilitator: Suzanne Arnold, Director Right Approach.

ANTI-DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION TRAINING

Supports Child Safe Standard 4

This training emphasises that all children and young people with different abilities deserve to be respected and valued. It is vital that all workers understand the concept of unlawful discrimination, as well as the role they must play in the prevention of disability discrimination. Training emphasises the tensions that often arise when balancing the duty to provide a non-discrimination educational setting and the duty to provide children with a safe environment.

Facilitator: Suzanne Arnold, Director Right Approach.

BARRIERS TO CHILDREN’S PARTICIPATION FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

Supports Child Safe Standard 2 and 4

Most research in the area of participation points out that we live in a society where children with disabilities are not heard and adults do not encourage children with disabilities to take part in decision making. This training program outlines barriers children with disabilities face in their participation.

Facilitator: Suzanne Arnold, Director Right Approach.

Supports Child Safe Standard 2
