Early Childhood Education and Care Mandatory Reporting Workshops

(If you find a workshop is fully booked, please register on the Wait List so we can notify you if space becomes available.)

Please Note:  NAPCAN are not providing a certificate of attendance for the Department Run workshops.

From 1 July 2017, early childhood educators will be mandated by law to report child safety concerns to the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services. Workshops are being held across Queensland to ensure early childhood educators are well prepared for the changes to enable them to confidently report and refer vulnerable children and families to the right services at the right time.

The workshop covers:

  • Roles and responsibilities in the prevention of child abuse and neglect;
  • Legislative roles and responsibilities in relation to reporting child abuse and neglect (i.e. mandatory reporting);
  • Organisational/individual responsibility in responding to early indicators of harm and family support needs;
  • Definitions of child abuse and neglect including recognising harm indicators and child/family risk and protective factors;
  • How to respond to disclosures of child abuse and neglect; and
  • Prevention strategies and practices.
N.B. This training is for early education providers only, if you are unable to make this session, you are able to attend the open session “Child Abuse & Neglect Prevention/ Mandatory Reporting Workshops” 

PLEASE NOTE: These workshops provide important information as part of professional development for people working with children, but are not legally required. The workshops cover the topic of mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect; HOWEVER, the workshops themselves are not mandatory.

If you are unable to attend a workshop, there is also a suite of information resources developed for early childhood educators about how to report to Child Safety or refer families for help. Go to the Child Safety website. 

NAPCAN's Child Safe Organisations Workshop (also listed on this training calendar) is also recommended for all people who work with children. 

FREE

**A maximum of 5 people per organisation can register per workshop**
