General Information

Keeping children safe within organisations requires a broad understanding of the overarching principles of safeguarding.  This three-day 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 should take this course?
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.

The Programme Essentials Course is reserved for CSPN Member organizations.

*Note: The 2021 October PET in Orlando is very limited on space; we are only opening this in-person launch of our new course to 20 persons. Please read the paragraphs above carefully, and thoughtfully choose which staff member(s) should attend.

PET Dates and Times
The PET will be preceded by a mandatory two-hour Orientation session that gives an overview of general Child Safety in order to provide a shared foundation for learning. Please plan to attend every PET session throughout the training.

Orientation runs from 4:00-6:00pm on Sunday, October 10, 2021 followed by the Programme Essentials Training, running from Monday morning through Wednesday, 10/13 at approximately 5:00pm EDT. Plan to arrive at the venue by 3:30pm on Sunday to check in with the facilitators and receive your packet of materials. If you have attended an Orientation at a prior CSPN training, you are not required to attend this session on Sunday.

A certificate of Continuing Education Credits will be provided at completion of the course.
