Are you aware of the new mandatory reporting requirements?
Mandatory reporters as of March 2019 will now include early childhood workers, out-of-home-care workers, Youth Justice workers and psychologists. https://providers.dhhs.vic.gov.au/mandatory-reporting
The Centre provides training for all organisations who are required to be compliant with the Child Safe Standards and/or who are now part of the Reportable Conduct Scheme.
We can provide customised training on a range of topics, including mandatory reporting, and have presented over 100 sessions on Child Safe Standards and Reportable Conduct to organisations throughout Victoria. (Please call us for a quote)
We also conduct training sessions at the Centre on a regular basis. https://www.cfecfw.asn.au/calendar/
We are aware that most local councils are actively engaged with Child Safe Standards and many councils are ensuring they are compliant through audits and monitoring. Please find attached to this email the DHHS Compliance Framework which may assist you.
