CHCPRT001 Identify and Respond to Children and Young People at Risk (RTO ID 90842)

Under the National Quality Framework, Nominated Supervisors and persons in day-to-day charge must have training in child protection in order to be the responsible person in charge of a service.

CELA has been delivering child protection training as a Registered Training Organisation for over 10 years. Our CHCPRT001 Identify and Respond to Children and Young People at Risk webinar series has recently been through a review to ensure we are providing the most up to date information and training to participants. 

The session covers the responsibilities of mandatory reporters in NSW, teaches how to identify significant harm and risk factors, and outlines what's required in the provision of child-safe environments.

Participants who successfully complete the related assessment task will be issued with a Statement of Attainment (SOA) for this unit. This SOA is Nationally Recognised.

Students must be working (either paid or as a volunteer) in a registered children’s service to complete the assessment requirements.
