Safe environments for children and young people 'through their eyes' training

Safe environments – Through their eyes training

This training has been developed by the Department of Human Services Child Safe Environments team to assist organisations providing services to children and young people. It will support staff and volunteers to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm and build their capacity to provide safe environments within the organisation.

Organisations should consider requiring their staff and volunteers that work with children and young people attend a Safe environments training course.

This full day course (or half day update) will support individuals to understand their obligations under the Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 to provide child safe environments within their role in working with or alongside children.

Please call us on (08) 8234 5219 or email on train@gowriesa.org.au if you would like to participate in this training or have it held at your site.

Please note: This is not the same course as Responding to Abuse and Neglect (formerly known as 'Mandated Notification') which is essential for all teachers and staff working with children and young people on Department for Education sites.
