The ‘Meaningful Engagement with Children and Young People’ is a 2-hour virtual classroom training that breaks down the difference between broad engagement with children in the child safety space and practicing meaningful consultation.

This interactive program aims to build the capacity of participants to improve their skills in engaging with children and young people, as well as developing meaningful strategies for planning, facilitating and evaluating consultation with 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.
