Children First Training
Children First is National Guidance that promotes the protection of children from abuse and neglect. It states what organisations need to do to keep children safe, and what different bodies and the general public should do if they are concerned about a child’s safety 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.
Under Children First Act 2015, Mandated Reporting starts on December 11th, 2017. If you are employed in a childcare service and work directly with children, you are a mandated reporter. To find out more please follow the link https://youtu.be/HjitN5EWQvo to view an introductory video on the subject.
will allow you to undertake an online information module on the subject (‘Introduction to Children First’). This online course needs to be completed before booking a Child Protection Foundation course with Tipperary Childcare Committee.
Child Protection Foundation courses will restart in 2018 as soon as all materials have been updated.
Your children’s care and welfare are our main priority
