In-house Training (Coming soon)
Safe Environments for Children and Young People – Through Their Eyes (online delivery)
Child and Family Focus SA (CAFFSA) is pleased to offer Safe Environments for Children and Young People “though their eyes” training as an online, interactive virtual workshop for the months of May and June 2020.
Child safe environments are safe and friendly settings where children feel respected, valued, and encouraged to reach their full potential. Children and young people have a right to be safe and protected at all times. The Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 requires certain organisations provide a child safe environment.
Safe environments training assists organisations to support their staff and volunteers to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm, and build their capacity to provide child safe environments. It is for people who work or volunteer with children and young people and covers topics including:
Child Protection in context, values and attitudes
Legislation obligations when working with children (including screening obligations)
Risk and harm – abuse related trauma
Abuse related trauma, sexual abuse, online grooming
Responding to disclosures
Child safe environments
Reporting suspicion of risk and harm
We have been working behind the scenes to adapt all our packages to suit the virtual format and are committed to continue to deliver the highly engaging and relational standard of training we are known for and pride ourselves on.
In moving to online delivery, we are mindful of the sensitivity of this topic and prioritise duty of care to our participants when training in the virtual space. Therefore, to align with these standards, virtual class numbers will be caped to a maximum of 15 participants per workshop with a maximum of 5 per organisation.
Safe environments training requires participants to explore types of risk of harm to children and young people, including domestic violence, sexual and physical abuse. If you are concerned about attending this program, please speak to us prior to attending the course to discuss options.
