Child Protection and Welfare

A new child protection and welfare training course for the early years sector is now available and is being delivered by accredited trainers in Tipperary Childcare Committee.

This free series of workshops is held over one full day (6 hours) or two evenings (3 hours each evening).  It is a recommended course for all childcare providers.  The aim of the course is to raise awareness of child protection issues.

The topics covered include:

  • Defining & recognising abuse
  • Developing a code of behaviour
  • Putting meaningful policies & procedures in place

Child Protection & Training Course

The first level of training to be offered is Child Protection & Welfare: Foundation Level. This is a Child & Family Agency accredited module that has been developed for the early years sector. The new programme replaces the ‘Keeping Safe’ child protection training course.

Training will be rolled out over 3 years and will be offered to all early years workers (including childminders).
