About the Event
This course is not meant as a “All Staff Training” – it was designed to provide the intro level to deeper training for members of the school’s response team (or potential members of the school’s response) only.
Experts will support response team work on creation and audit of child protection policies and supplemental policies, such as safer hiring. Teams will work together to develop shared values around child protection while evaluating their institutional risks and vulnerabilities. The ITFCP allegation protocol will be introduced, and teams will use case reviews to understand victim and offender behavior. Topics addressed include first responder question formation, and the grooming process. Individual team planning using course provided scaffolding will be emphasized. Online tools, such as polling, and breakout rooms will enable participant interaction and exchange by role and country location. Support and resources for whole staff training will be provided through the training the trainer approach.
