Introduction to Children First (Tusla Child Protection 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.
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.
Tula’s elearning 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.

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.
All Childminding Ireland members will be required to have completed a child protection course by July 2019. Members can choose Tusla’s elearning training programme or alternatively for a more in depth understanding of child protection, members can complete the Child Safeguarding Foundation Level training organised by Childminding Ireland.
