General Information

Keeping children safe within organisations requires a broad understanding of the overarching principles of safeguarding.  This three-day PET course is designed to equip the people responsible for organisational child safety with the knowledge, skills and resources to develop a comprehensive child safety programme.  Key topics will include: governance, scope of responsibility; understanding your organisational culture; duty of care; legal obligations and policy development. Each of the three modules will include a topical overview, foundational components and practical application.

Who is this for?

Sending the right people to the right training makes a big difference. 

This course is designed for policy makers and leaders who have responsibility for implementing and developing child safety programme in their schools or organisations. These leaders are not necessarily the ‘hands on’ members of a child safety response team or even those who are delivering curriculum. Suggested attendees are HR leaders, managers, school administrators, board members or anyone involved in strategy and implementation. A more thorough description and outline of the course may be found here.

CSPN is committed to providing research-based training with excellence. Attendance is expected for the full schedule. The Program Essentials Training is interactive with an expectation that participants engage in group work and discussions. A certificate of Continuing Education Credits will be provided at completion of the course for those who attend the FULL schedule of training

*The Programme Essentials Course is reserved for CSPN Member organizations.
