Child Protection, Mandatory Reporting & Grooming

Recognising and responding to child abuse and neglect are essential skills for people who work with children and young people.  The way in which an adult responds to a child experiencing harm can have a lasting impact on their recovery.

Our facilitators share sector knowledge and experience to build the capacity of participants to identify and respond to child abuse, neglect, and grooming.  This workshop meets requirements for NQS, and both government and non-government school registration.

Workshop includes:

  • Indicators of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect.
  • Grooming behaviours related to child sexual abuse.
  • Responding to suspected or disclosed child abuse or neglect.
  • Department of Communities Mandatory Reporting system.
  • Comprehensive Learner Guide.
  • Attendance Certificate.

Child Protection and Mandatory Reporting Workshops are recommended for staff and volunteers in:

  • Schools and boarding facilities
  • Early Childhood Services
  • Clubs and Community Organisations
  • Churches
