JOIN US FOR THE

Child Safeguarding & Protection Conference

APRIl 19-20, 2024

Rogner Hotel, Tirana, Albania


This two-day in-person event provides deep training for school-based child protection team members. International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) Regional Trainers will offer Level I and Level II workshops that support schools in strengthening child protection policies and procedures and include case studies. We’ll also provide time for community building, support, and experience sharing to help you build your regional network.

LEVEL I WORKSHOPS

Completion of Level I is required for participation in Level II. For anyone who has not yet completed an ICMEC Level I course, we’ll offer it on day 1. The training is comprised of BOTH asynchronous and synchronous modules, and it is expected that participants will complete asynchronous modules in advance of the conference.

This foundational course enables deep training of school-based child protection (CP) team members, and covers 6 essential synchronous modules:

  1. Rights-Based Child Protection
  2. Online Safety
  3. Policies and Procedures
  4. Establishing a Team Approach
  5. ITFCP Managing Allegation Protocol
  6. First Responder Training

Level I participants will have multiple Level II workshop options on the second day of the conference.

LEVEL II WORKSHOPS

We’ll offer the following Level II workshops* over the course of the 2-day conference. We will do our best to allow everyone to take the courses of their choice, and may offer some workshops more than once to meet demand.

  • Online Safety
  • Risk Assessment
  • Child-on-Child Abuse
  • Safer Hiring for Safer Schools
  • Cultural Sensitivity in Safeguarding
  • Deciphering Victim Behavior
  • Training for Medical Staff
  • Working with Parents
  • Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation

NOTE: As Level II workshops are geared toward child protection team members, we recommend that teams work together to choose different workshops based on role at the school, role on the team, and interest, so that the team represents a range of expertise.

Workshops will run from 8:30am-4:30pm on April 19, and 8:30am-4:00pm on April 20.

Places are limited - register early to secure your spot.
