The 'Beyond Working with Children Checks – Safer Recruitment' is a 2-hour virtual classroom training designed to help participants learn how to apply a child safety lens to each step of the screening and recruitment process. Approaching each recruitment step with a child safe lens will ensure that all parties are clear of your organisation’s expectations and standards and send a strong message about valuing the rights and safety of children and young people.

What is virtual classroom training? 

Virtual classroom training is essentially a teaching and learning environment where participants can interact, communicate, view and discuss presentations, and engage with learning resources while working in groups, all in an online setting. It is a live, interactive training session facilitated by an experienced Child Wise trainer and limited to a small class of up to 20 participants to ensure a complete learning experience for you. Once you have submitted the evaluation survey, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.

How does our virtual classroom training work?

To prevent disruption to fellow participants, no one will be admitted to the training if they are more than 15 mins late. Late arrivals will not be entitled to join another session unless delay was due to a medical reason or CW issue.
