)-- ChildSafeguarding.com Launches New Online Child Protection Training Course Accessible to All Adults
Today ChildSafeguarding.com launched a new online child protection course built specifically for support staff at international schools. The 60-90 minute course provides universal baseline child protection training accessible to all adults, regardless of language, geography, or literacy level.
“International schools have unique needs when it comes to child protection training,” said Matt Harris, Ed.D., CEO of ChildSafeguarding.com. “There is often a real educational, linguistic, and cultural gap when it comes to employee training at international schools. We aim to close that gap.”
The ChildSafeguarding.com child protection training course is based on instructional design principles that focus on accessibility, with videos and animations built for engagement. The web-based course will launch in English, with versions in all major languages of Southeast Asia also available (Mandarin Chinese, Bahasa Indonesia, and Bahasa Melayu). Additional languages will follow.
Course content was developed in partnership with child protection expert Chris Gould of 112 Safeguarding, and in consultation with leading international schools, accrediting bodies, and members of law enforcement.
“All NEASC schools are held to a high standard for child protection and safeguarding policies, practices, procedures, and impacts,” said Jeffrey C. Bradley, Director of the Commission on International Education at the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). “We expect everybody in a learning community to take responsibility. We appreciate the important training tool that ChildSafeguarding.com offers to schools, and indeed support all efforts to promote such training and awareness in schools."
