Course Description

Learn how to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm, child abuse or neglect in this one-day workshop.

This ‘Creating safe environments for children and young people’ workshop focuses on child protection in the context of ‘Through Their Eyes’ and has the safety and wellbeing of children at its core. It covers:

  • Introduction to child protection in context.
  • Values and attitudes: ‘Through our eyes’.
  • Risk and harm: South Australian legislation.
  • Risk and harm: Abuse-related trauma.
  • Sexual abuse and online grooming.
  • Through their eyes: Disclosure.
  • Safe organisations.
  • Reporting suspicion of risk and harm.

In South Australia, when there are suspicions a child is being harmed or is at risk of harm, a wide range of people are required by law to notify the Child Abuse Report Line.

This full-day training is designed for professionals or volunteers who are mandatory reporters and have not completed the full course within the last three years. Refresher training is available if you have completed this course.

Please note: Skills Centre Training (Port Augusta and Berri) is supported by the Department for Education, Government of South Australia.
