Managing Child Wellbeing Concerns and Providing a Safe Environment - KU Staff Only

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

  • Current trends in child protection policy and practice (i.e. 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 for reporting complaints and concerns -  types of complaints / who to notify / procedural fairness / notification obligations etc

It is a regulatory requirement for all staff in services who have contact with children to be aware of current child protection 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.
