Child Protection workshops
Implementing New Accreditation Standards for Child Protection
CIS Schedules 2016-2017 Workshops to Educate and Prepare School Communities
CIS is committed to helping our school communities prepare for the implementation of core Accreditation Standards for child protection. To do this, we have enlisted a global team of child protection experts who will collaborate with us to educate and support you, through two-day workshops for leaders, counsellors and teachers. Join CIS Professional Staff including Executive Director Jane Larsson, Director of Career & Recruitment Services Pauline O'Brien, and a member of our School Support & Evaluation team at each of our four workshops.
We offer two distinct but equally valuable focuses during the workshop. Past attendees recommend that schools register at least one person in each strand to gain perspective from the full range of workshop topics.
