The training covers how KU educators respond to child wellbeing or child protections concerns, support vulnerable families provide a safe environment:

  • Current trends in child protection policy and practice (ie. mandatory reporting requirements, identifying and responding to abuse and neglect concerns)
  • The role of educators in engaging and supporting vulnerable children and their families who may be at risk of harm
  • Elements of a 'child safe' organisation - the 10 National Child Safe Principles / duty of care / professional practice / interactions with children / professional boundaries / safeguards for educators
  • KU's process of reporting complaints and concerns - types of complaints / who to notify / procedural fairness / notification of obligations etc.

It is a regulatory requirement for all staff in services who have contact with children, to be aware of current child protections laws and obligations. To ensure this requirement is met it is a KU expectation that all staff in services attend this training every two to three years.
