Information and training

The implementation of Keep Them Safe requires numerous changes to how government and non-government organisations work together to ensure the safety, welfare, and wellbeing of children and young people throughout NSW.

TAFE NSW delivered 560 information sessions to mandatory reporters between mid-October 2009 and late January 2010, providing an overview of these changes. Approximately 23,000 mandatory reporters from the government and non-government sectors attended these sessions.

The TAFE information session has also been developed as an eLearning presentation, which takes approximately two hours to complete. If you wish to use this eLearning package in a small group, the Participant's manual and Facilitator's guide will assist in running the session. (Please note that these resources, designed for the three-hour face-to-face sessions, do differ from the content of the two-hour eLearning session in some areas.)

In 2010, Keep Them Safe partnered with TAFE and Association of Childrens Welfare Agencies (ACWA) to develop and deliver Phase 2 training sessions to non-government mandatory reporters and the early childhood sector.

Your organisation may be offering child protection training and information sessions to assist staff with the changes resulting from Keep Them Safe. Additional training courses are also available from the Centre for Community Welfare Training.
