Education sites have child protection requirements for some of the groups, individuals and organisations that they work with.
This applies to anyone that provides a direct support or service to children and young people. Some examples include:
- sporting or recreation clubs
- cultural groups
- breakfast clubs.
Your staff and volunteers must have child protection training.
This does not include people that run a one-off session where they are directly supervised by education staff.
In South Australia, most people do Responding to Risks of Harm, Abuse and Neglect –Education and Care.
There is a fundamentals course for your organisation’s:
- bus drivers
- canteen workers.
All other individuals working with children and young people must also complete the RRHAN-EC masterclass.
Leaders on education sites must check that this training has been done. Expect to be asked for evidence of the training.
All ongoing volunteers in education sites must do mandatory notification training every 3 years. All volunteers do the same online fundamentals training.
This training is on a system called Plink. They need to create a Plink account to access the training.
Your organisation must:
- record your volunteers RRHAN-EC training on a site-specific spreadsheet or database
- keep a copy of the certificate.
The online course might not be the best option for some volunteers. You can contact us to find out about other delivery methods.
