Child Safe Organisations: eLearning modules released

A series of free, online training modules to help organisations increase their knowledge and understanding of child safety was released recently by the National Children’s Commissioner Megan Mitchell, at a national forum in Sydney.

The Forum on Child Safe Organisations, hosted by the Commissioner, included a range of high-profile leaders of organisations involved in the provision of services and supports to children – from sporting networks, to youth groups, education, health, child and family services, and international aid agencies. The forum provided an opportunity for leaders to exchange information about efforts within their own sectors and organisations to foster and embed the cultural and practice change needed to keep children safe and well.

The modules support the training required to implement the ten National Child Safe Principles which were endorsed by COAG in February 2019, based on the child safe standards recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The e-modules are available here.
