Understand and implement the child safe standards

This short course will inform and educate practitioners working with children on the possible signs that a child or family may be in crisis, and how to support children and families during this time. The session will give practitioners the tools to identify, document, and report using best practice procedures.

The Victorian Government Betrayal of Trust report found that more must be done to prevent and respond to child abuse in the community. The Government have introduced mandatory child safe standards to support this. This course will explain how to ensure implementation of the standards, to which all Early Education and care services must adhere.

This course is designed for educators working in Education and Care services, and covers:
• Diversity within the family dynamic
• Stresses within the home
• How we can support families in crisis to try to avoid escalation of volatility within the home
• Indicators of possible abuse
• Mandatory reporting versus duty of care
• Documentation of suspected abuse or harm
• Reporting process…to whom and how
• Follow up support for staff, families and children
• Supporting one another during the identification, documentation and reporting processes

After successfully completing this course you will receive a Statement of Attendance.
