Effective Safeguarding Committee Training

Effective Safeguarding Committee Training

Duration: 52 minutes

This e-Learning video is designed for those who are involved in the implementation of child safety policies and procedures within a Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne parish, agency or entity. As each parish, agency or entity is required to form a Safeguarding Committee, we discuss the role of this committee, suitability of candidates for the role and how this committee might operate.

In this video, we explore responsibilities and legislative requirements in relation to the implementation and compliance with the Safeguarding Framework Children and Young People Framework informed by the Victorian Child Safe Standards, National Principles of Child Safe Organisations and the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards.

Throughout the video, practical examples of a parish working through the Safeguarding Framework are shown and discussed, with this culminating in an overview of the self-assessment tool designed to guide parishes, agencies and entity through the requirements of the Framework.
