General Information

Orientation for the Prague Response Team Training will be taking place on Sunday, April 7th from 4 to 6 pm. This will be followed by the Response Team Training (RTT), running from Monday, April 8th through Wednesday, April 10th at 5 pm. Please plan to attend orientation as it is an essential part of this conference.

This Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training on how to respond to child safety reports. This course is designed to specifically equip response team members, with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child within your organization. This training is a specialized course focusing on response team protocols for organizations who have an established Child Safety program and are able to respond to any reports of concern. This training is not a general Child Safety Training program, although it will give your organization an overview of what is ultimately needed. Attendees should be members of your organization who will be part of your response team, either as a team member, management/leadership of a response or member care staff who will support those directly involved.

The Response Team Training is reserved for CSPN Member organizations. Mission agencies and international schools are encouraged to send 2-4 people to the same RTT event. CSPN Members must be approved by their organization’s gatekeeper to attend. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.

If your organization would like to join CSPN, please see our membership tab.

ACSI ICEC

The CSPN RTT will be preceding the ACSI ICEC conference which will be taking place April 11-14. The ICEC conference will be taking place at the Clarion hotel which is a 3-minute walk from the Pivovar hotel where the CSPN RTT will be taking place. Please note that the registrations are separate! Click here for more information.  


RTT Information

Response Team Training (RTT) is geared for Mission 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 Response Team Training, the agency gatekeepers are asked to commit to the following:

  • identify response 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 response 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 Response Team Training - April 8-10, 2019.
