CHCPRT001 Identify and Respond to Children and Young People at Risk (RTO ID 90842) - Self-Paced Online

Study CHCPRT001 online at your own pace with live weekly support sessions from sector experts.


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.

This unit from the CHC Community Services Training Package meets the NQF requirements in NSW relating to the role of the Nominated Supervisor and Responsible person. 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.

You will learn how to respond to disclosures of abuse and how to report abuse and neglect in NSW. You will also become knowledgeable about the long-term impacts that abuse or neglect may cause in children and young people and how to adopt a strengths-based approach to supporting children who have experienced trauma.
