Training on a wide range of child protection issues, specifically tailored to the needs of international school communities

  • 16 January: 08.30 - 18.30 (including evening reception)
  • 17 January: 08.30 - 17.00

During this two-day workshop you will learn about key topics relating to child protection in international school communities. If you are a school leader or counsellor, this workshop will help you strengthen child protection systems while networking with your peers in member schools. The Foundation Workshop provides the information and tools necessary to comply with new international safeguarding standards and accreditation frameworks, and help your school develop processes to better prevent, identify early and manage appropriately all forms of harm and abuse to which your students may be exposed.

This training is tailored to the specific needs of international school communities and will cover: offender behaviour; peer-on-peer abuse; how to receive disclosures, discussing abuse in culturally diverse communities; building a comprehensive sexuality and relationships programme; and effective recruitment practices.

The format consists of a series of keynote sessions, and then you choose a strand for additional learning. The first strand focuses on managing child abuse in international school communities. The second strand focuses on educating students to empower them to protect themselves, and supporting students suffering from harm. Participants are required to select the strand they wish to attend when they register.
