Enhanced Lifestyles is a DHS Approved Child Safe Training Organisation and we strongly support children, young people and their right to be safe always, including when accessing services in the community.
Our training is delivered by an experienced Child-Safe facilitator who has worked in the education and disability fields for many years. The full 7 hour Child Safe course is delivered at the end of every month via Zoom and will equip you with the skills and knowledge to identify when a child or young person may be at risk of harm and understanding the mandatory reporting obligations according to the Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 (SA) and associated regulations. The DECD Child Safe Environments training has been updated to reflect current changes to the definition of harm and “at risk” in relation to child protection and changes to the Child Protection Act 2017 (SA).
Emma conducted the training in a professional and friendly manner whilst affording her trainee’s plenty opportunities to discuss ideas and comment on issues as they related to the trainee’s own personal experiences. This enabled clarification not only from a legal perspective but also produced a deeper and broader insight into what constitutes child abuse and neglect. I particularly found valuable the primacy of a ‘child focus’ approach in relation to assessing child abuse and how our values and attitudes impact our assessment of others. Emma was encouraging and knowledgeable throughout this process."
