ABOUT THE COURSE

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

Within these 6 modules, additional topics addressed include definitions and possible indicators of abuse, professional boundaries, creating a school climate of safeguarding, the grooming process, and child-on-child abuse. Case studies are used throughout the course to support schools in strengthening safeguarding procedures. Support and resources for whole staff training are provided through the training-of-trainers approach. The Level I Certificate earned at the end of this training is valid for three years.

AUDIENCE

This training is recommended for all CP team members. CP 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.

OUTCOMES

    • Understand child protection accreditation standards and foundational beliefs.
    • Determine needed policies and stages of implementation.
    • Identify supporting resources, including ITFCP Allegation Protocol, audits, and CP policy samples.
    • Work as a team to enhance or create CP policies and procedures.
    • Prioritize supplemental policies.
    • Understand basic victim and offender behavior.
