Creating Safer Organisations: Implementing the Child Safe Standards

This course will enable participates to be confident in ensuring they have the skills necessary to create a child-safe organisation.


Cyber Safety: Protecting Children Online

This evidence-based course enables workers to develop awareness of current child safety issues for children and young people using new technologies (for activities such as gaming, social networking, cyberbullying and accessing inappropriate material).


Towards a Child Safe Workforce: Recruitment and Interviewing Skills

This evidence-based practical course will enable participants to become confident and competent in safer interviewing in the recruitment process. This will ensure workers who are recruited demonstrate child safety values and behaviours.
