As part of our ongoing safety and protection of our children, young people and vulnerable adults at Cornerstone Church at the Well we will be holding a Child Protection Training day. This is for everyone who is involved in working within any of the teams which work with children and young people. This training will be given by Miriam O Regan.
We would ask those intending to attend this training day to have completed the Children First E-Learning Programme. Infomation below.
Children First E-Learning Programme
Tusla has worked with the DCYA and HSE to developed a universal e-learning training programme called ‘Introduction to Children First’. The programme has been written to support people of all backgrounds and experience in recognising concerns about children and reporting such concerns if they arise.
The programme is based on Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children and the Children First Act 2015.
The programme takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete but it can be done in a number of sittings. The programme will allow you to log back in and resume where you left off. It covers topics including:
Recognising and reporting child abuse;
The role of mandated persons;
The responsibilities of organisations working with children to safeguard children;
The role of designated liaison persons.
You will need to create an account using an email address to log in and complete the progamme. This allows you to complete the training gradually over time. When you have completed the programme, you will receive a certificate of completion directly to your email address.
