Thank you to all our AISA members who registered for the AISA/ICMEC LEVEL 1 Child Protection Training; Virtual Workshop taking place from 13 to 27 September 2023.

Child Protection is a key focus area of AISA’s Wellbeing for All Programme which ultimately aims to support schools in their goal of creating an environment where every child feels safe, supported, and able to flourish.

AISA is partnering with the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) to bring together a team of international child protection experts to help you strengthen your child protection policies and programmes. Child Protection is the responsibility of EVERYONE, and this training is designed to give you the basic knowledge and skills to be an advocate for the safeguarding of children. There are no prerequisites to this course.

This Level 1 Training is now offered in two parts. Part 1 is an asynchronous component that comprises 4 modules that are completed before the synchronous workshops begin. These modules will cover the basics of:

1. Rights of the child
2. Responsibilities of those who work with children
3. Definitions and possible indicators of abuse
4. Child protection policies and procedures for schools
5. Professional boundaries
6. Contextual safeguarding
7. Trauma-informed victim response
8. Managing allegations

The three 2-hour workshops in September then cover the following topics, each led by an ICMEC Level 3 trainer:

1) Rights-Based Child Protection
2) Online Safety
3) Policies and Procedures
4) Establishing a Team Approach
5) ITFCP Managing Allegation Protocol
6) First Responder Training

This course will give you and your staff foundational child protection knowledge that will ensure you:

  • Understand child protection accreditation standards and foundational beliefs.
  • Develop a shared understanding of harm and abuse and the signs that may indicate a child is being harmed or abused.
  • Review and improve your child protection policy and implementation framework, based on learning from case reviews, that will strengthen your ability to prevent and respond to instances of harm and abuse.
  • Gain access to supporting resources, including ITFCP Managing Allegation Protocol, audits, and CP policy samples.
  • Understand basic victim and offender behaviours.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 13th of September.
