General Information

How does your organisation respond when there is a concern that a child has been harmed? In the International context, there is often no clear place to turn for objective help. There can be so many competing interests and diverse opinions involved. Very often the reaction can be one of confusion, uncertainty, or even panic. 

This Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training designed to equip your organisation with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child. We will look at the principles of Child Safety and Misconduct Assessments and give you a toolbox to help you make decisions and create safety plans. Using a Process Map, you will navigate your way through different ‘real life’ scenarios that will bring principle-based theory to life.  Table-based discussions and group work enhance shared learning and provide excellent networking opportunities.       

Who is this training for?

This course is not a general child safety prevention training, although it will help you to identify where gaps may be in your own context. This course is ideally for personnel in your organisation or school who are child safety team members responsible for or involved in dealing with an incident of harm (or risk of harm) to a child. Attendees might also include field leaders or member care providers who would benefit from understanding the Response Process.  

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 NOTE: We are launching our new Programme Essentials Training (PET) alongside the RTT course. The two courses are running concurrently; you may not register the same person for both events. For more information on the Programme Essentials, please go to NEW Taiwan Programme Essentials under the “Events” on our website.

Dates and Times
The RTT will be preceded by a two-hour Orientation session that gives an overview of general Child Safety in order to provide a shared foundation for learning.

Orientation will be taking place on Monday, February 17, from 4:00 to 6:00pm. The RTT will follow running Tuesday, February 18 through Thursday, February 20 at 5:00pm. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.

A certificate of Continuing Education Credits will be provided at completion of the course.
