An engage Scotland training workshop delivered by Children in Scotland
This one day workshop offers training on developing or updating organisational child protection policies based on the Creative Scotland/Children in Scotland Creating Safety publication.
This workshop is aimed at anyone working in galleries, visual arts organisations, museums and heritage venues with responsibility for child protection.
Having an effective child protection policy can help to create a child-safe organisation. A robust child protection policy should ensure that children and young people are safe and protected from abuse and exploitation and that staff are aware of risk factors, able to recognise signs of abuse and confident in dealing with any risks or allegations that they may encounter. The overriding aim must be to protect children from risk and abuse and to ensure that they enjoy learning experiences, but protection of staff and organisations are also key factors.
Participants at this training workshop will gain a basic understanding of what is required when creating or updating their own child protection policy as well as advice on where to locate further information and support.
Booking will open for this event in the New Year.
