This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to support and protect children and young people who are at risk of harm. This work occurs within legislative and policy frameworks and carries a duty of care responsibility. This unit applies to workers in a range of job roles providing services to children and young people including in community services and health contexts.
This unit can be completed through the following methods:
- Online Option – $130 (6 months to complete the course)
- Upgrade Option – $100
- Face to Face Workshop – 7 hours which includes assessments
- Face to Face Workshop/Online Combined Option – 3 hour workshop then assessments completed online
*Please contact us for a quote for Option 3 and 4
Option 1: Online Course – $130 – SPECIAL – $100
The Online Child Protection Course consists of a series of Short Answer Questions, and a small number of Short Project Questions.
Students are provided with a Learner Guide which is referenced in each of the Assessments, to help student complete the questions and locate the relevant information required to answer that question. There is also the requirement of a Supervisors Declaration to be completed.
Any enrolment is accompanied with a period of up to 6 months to complete the course. Realistically, it would take staff about 3 – 6 hours to complete the assessments in total.
Upon successful completion of the course, a Statement of Attainment will be issued straight away.
Option 2: Online “Upgrade” Course – $100
If you have completed CHCCHILD401B, CHCCHILD401A or CHCCHILD1C and still working in the Children Services Industry? Then there is a simplified upgrade pathway that can be completed. This will save you time having to answer all the short answer questions and project questions.
This pathway is designed to recognise your current skills and experience within the industry. Below gives an idea of what type of evidence may be requested:
– Certified copy of your Statement of Attainment showing that you hold the unit
– Completed Supervisors Declaration
– Copy of your Resume (Or something to show how long you have been working in Child Care – e.g. Appointment Letter)
– Copy of your position Description
– Answer the 6 Questions in the “Upgrade Documentation” – these questions are designed to assess the skill gap between the older units and the most current unit
Option 3: Face to Face Workshop (7 Hours)
A qualified Trainer and Assessor can attend your workplace on a single day; on this day, the Trainer would deliver the content for the course, and work through all assessments. Students will also complete a number of different activities throughout the training to assist in the delivery and application of the content.
All the assessment activities would be completed throughout the training.
We do not set any minimal numbers for this training. Please contact us for a Quote. The Quote will depend on student numbers, and location. Generally, the cost per student is around $100 – $125. We try out best not too, but some travel costs may apply.
Our service areas are within a couple of hours of Sydney in NSW, and Toowoomba/Brisbane area in QLD. We can travel outside of this; however, travel costs may apply.
Option 4: Face to Face/Online Combined
This pathway would involve a Qualified Trainer/Assessor attending a workplace on a given day/night for 2-3 hours. I would suggest 3 hours is a little better, but we can work with your time frames etc. The Trainer would present the content through a presentation, with group discussions etc the same as it would be done during the full day course. The Trainer would also explain the assessment requirements for the course e.g. full coursework, or upgrade pathway. Staff will then be provided with the full coursework (Option 1) to complete in 6 months after the course, or paperwork for Option 2.
This is a good option if you are a little time poor, or cannot spare staff for a full day. This option can be delivered at any time, and you can elect for a night course after the centre shuts for example.
