CHCCHILD401A, Identify and respond to children and young people at risk, is a national unit of competency which is part of the CHC08 Community Services Training package. CHCCHILD401A focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfil duty of care requirements and apply relevant legislation, policies, and procedures in responding to children and young people.

The training resources on this page have been developed to assist registered training organisations (RTOs) to train staff who work with children and young people, and to help them understand their responsibilities as mandatory reporters. The resources have been developed to reflect the changes to the child protection system resulting from Keep Them Safe. The resources will assist staff in using the Mandatory Reporter Guide, provide them with guidelines on maintaining professional boundaries, and be aware of their responsibilities under the new system and the new information exchange provisions.

The PowerPoint slides present the core content of the training session. These are intended to be used with the Facilitator’s Guide and Participant’s Manual for group training purposes.

If you would like to use these resources for entry-level child protection training, you should have completed the facilitator training.
