ITT Information

April 20-22, 2017

Thursday - Saturday
Tentative Schedule

Inquiry Team Training (ITT) is geared for Missions Organizations and International Christian Schools who: have been approved as members of the Child Safety & Protection Network, have completed or are in the process of drafting their child safety policies, and wish to train a team in the area of organizational response to child abuse reports regarding staff or children within their organization.

Agencies are asked to send a minimum of 2 team members (unless others from the organization have already attended one of the trainings) who have been specifically tasked with conducting internal inquiries for their organization.

Prior to attendance at the Inquiry Team Training, the agency gatekeepers are asked to commit to the following:

  • identify inquiry team members who fit the criteria (sample listed in the Elements of Child Safety).
  • review together your agency response policies and procedures so that the inquiry team training will build well on them.
  • bring your agency's child safety policies and procedures with you to the training (regardless of where in the process they may be, even if they are in draft form).

If your agency fits this criteria, we would like to invite you to the Child Safety Inquiry Team Training - April 20-22, 2017.
