Director’s message

The NSW Government’s five year action plan Keep Them Safe: A shared approach to child wellbeing is designed to improve the safety and wellbeing of children and young people in NSW.

The NSW Department of Education and Communities requires any person who has a role in working with children and young people in government schools and TAFE colleges in NSW to participate in an initial child protection induction.

Public Schools NSW is pleased to present Child protection awareness training, a self-paced e-learning course that provides this initial child protection induction training for all staff. This course is also DEC accredited and Institute registered and will enable teaching staff to generate evidence for maintaining acceditation at Professional Competence.

If you are a teacher maintaining your accreditation at professional competence you need to ensure that this course is scheduled by your school in My PL@Edu and shows your record of completion (see In-school delivery tab for details). Only those courses scheduled through My PL@Edu will be validated with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES).

The e-learning consists of three sections each of which must be completed prior to progressing to the next section. The sections are:

Once you have successfully completed all learning activities, you will be able to print a certificate of completion for your records.

I wish you well in successfully completing this Child protection awareness training.
