Introduction to Children First – Tusla elearning course
As a childminder it is really important that you are equipped to deal with any child protection issues that may arise for you.
We are in the process of developing a childminding tailored Child Protection programme, our plan is to have experienced childminders trained to deliver this training to other childminders. If you would like to be considered to deliver this training, please let us know. There will be an application process to be completed. The proposed programme will be subject to agreement with Always Children First Committee.
In the meantime, Tusla has developed a universal e-learning training programme called ‘Introduction to Children First’. The programme has been written to support people of all backgrounds and experience in recognising concerns about children and reporting such concerns if they arise.
The programme is based on Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children and the Children First Act 2015.
It takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete but it can be done in a number of sittings. The programme will allow you to log back in and resume where you left off. It covers topics including:
· Recognising and reporting child abuse;
· The role of mandated persons;
· The responsibilities of organisations working with children to safeguard children;
· The role of designated liaison persons.
You will need to create an account using an email address to log in and complete the programme. This allows you to complete the training gradually over time. When you have completed the programme, you will receive a certificate of completion directly to your email address. Click http://childrenfirstuniversal.hseland.ie/ to access the programme.
Once you have completed the training, please forward a copy of your certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add it to your record.
