*NEW* Child Safety in Emergencies

November 11, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDT


Child Wise specialises in advising organisations and communities on how they can provide a safe and empowering environment for children and young people. The ‘Child Safety in Emergencies’ is a 2-hour virtual classroom training designed to provide evidence-based information about planning for the physical and emotional safety and wellbeing of children and young people in an emergency response environment.

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 an experienced Child Wise trainer 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.
