‘Managing Child Abuse Disclosures and Concerns’ is a 2.5-hour virtual classroom training program was designed to provide participants with an understanding of reporting requirements and strategies for managing child safety and child protection concerns, incidents and allegations. Three scenarios are used during this session to work through organisational responses to child safety and child protection concerns. Guided by our experienced trainers, participants will work with the scenarios to develop an overall understanding of the following areas:

  • reporting to appropriate authorities;
  • the importance of providing ongoing support to impacted or affected parties and;
  • mitigating and managing immediate and ongoing risks. 

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.
