The ‘Managing online risks while working with children and young people’ is a 2-hour virtual classroom training that unpacks the actions that organisations need to take to ensure their children and young people are safe in online environments. This includes ensuring organisations meet their obligations under state and federal Government Child Safe Standards and Principles. This training will explore how organisations can ensure they are providing safe online spaces and how to engage with children and young people in these spaces. 

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.
