Building a child safeguarding culture and influencing change

July 23 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am AEST


‘Building a child safeguarding culture and influencing change’ is a 2-hour virtual classroom training program that examines the importance of child safety at every level. It aims to help participants develop an understanding of the tools used to assess their organisation’s maturity on a child safety spectrum. Our facilitators will take attendees through the journey of a child safety officer, examine different operating structures and present tools to help plan a longer-term strategy.

This virtual training program works well in conjunction with our Understanding the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations program.

What is virtual classroom training? 

Virtual classroom training is essentially a teaching and learning environment where participants can interact, communicate, view and discuss presentations, and engage with learning resources while working in groups, all in an online setting. It is a live, interactive training session facilitated by 2 experienced Child Wise trainers and limited to a small class of up to 20 participants to ensure a complete learning experience for you. Once you have submitted the evaluation survey, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
