ABOUT THE COURSE
This course was adapted and tested to maximize the virtual platform. It enables deep training of school-based child protection response teams to fulfill accreditation standards. 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.
This training is geared solely towards response teams. Response teams are comprised of child protection designates and deputies, senior leaders and designated board members, counselors, HR professionals, athletic and activity directors, nurse/medical staff, and staff with special child protection responsibilities including IT, social emotional learning (SEL), trips/service learning, and curriculum areas of vulnerability including early years, special needs/SEN, athletics, music and performing arts.
