Training Designed For

Our Child Protection Training for Board Members, Owners, and Senior Leaders course was designed to meet the learning needs, professional responsibilities, and educational background of governors and leaders.

Each group has Child Protection responsibilities, some of which overlap between groups. This course covers the areas that overlap so learners can develop a common understanding of Child Protection leadership. It also covers the areas that do not overlap so learners can understand the Child Protection responsibilities for those who hold other roles.

The course was designed by educators and Child Protection experts with decades of experience in leadership and governance, degrees in instructional design, and expertise in EdTech and eLearning.
