Child Safe Environment Training

In response to the legislative amendments specific to South Australia the Mandated notifiers program was updated in early 2006 and renamed Child-Safe Environments – Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect. The aim of this accredited training is to understand role and responsibility as a Mandated Notifier to meet compliance under this South Australian Legislation.

SAFE ENVIRONMENTS – THROUGH THEIR EYES TRAINING

Safe environments – Through their eyes training has been developed by the department to assist organisations providing services to children and young people to support their 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.

This version of the “Safe Environments training package (launched August 2018) has superseded the previous version of this program called “Child Safe Environments – Our community response to child abuseand neglect” which has ceased to be current effective 30th of December, 2018.

Organisations should consider requiring their staff and volunteers that work with children and young people attend a Safe environments training course.The aim of this accredited training is to understand role and responsibility as a Mandated Notifier to meet compliance under this South Australian Legislation.
