TRAINING & CONFERENCES.
One of the key tools that CSPN offers its members is its training courses and conferences where we gather to share ideas and resources concerning proactive approaches to child safety and protection within international Christian organisations.
CSPN Orientation is a 45-minute video course providing an overview and loads of helpful information about CSPN.
Orientation is free to CSPN members and is required for anyone wishing to take other CSPN trainings. However, it only needs to be taken one time; if you have attended Orientation in the past, you are not required to go through it for each training.
To received credit for this new Orientation, one must also complete an Orientation Assessment. Contact our office if you are interested.
RESPONSE TEAM TRAINING (RTT)
” One thing I appreciated was hearing from the presenters about their experiences and how they worked through issues and mistakes throughout the process. Having time to discuss with the groups was very beneficial because there was so much to process. I enjoyed it and will recommend this training to the rest of the child safety team at my school! “
RTT (Response Team Training) provides 18 hours of modular, principle-based training designed to equip international organisations to respond to any raised concern regarding child safety. This course teaches relevant response skills through the CSPN Response Model using multiple scenarios and assessment frameworks. Table-based discussions and group work enhance shared learning and provide excellent networking opportunities. Participants will leave the training with a clearer awareness and understanding of principles and skills that will help you be able to respond to child safety concerns within your organisation.
**The RTT 7 has recently undergone a review and revision process that resulted in a complete update based on the latest research, experience and observations of our members. If you have taken an earlier version of RTT, you may want to attend again to benefit from the update.
PROGRAMME ESSENTIALS TRAINING (PET)
” This training was exactly what we needed to get going. The elements and focus on how to get from where we are to where we want to go was empowering.
I am going back with a place to start and bench marks to measure the development of our Child Safety Program. “
” I have not read or known a great course as this, especially for those in Latin America, it is quite a new theme and the knowledge received in PET is excellent to build a program in our organizations… “
PET (Programme Essentials Training) is an excellent 18-hour module course designed to equip child safety programme managers and organizational leaders in the development and maintenance of an effective child safety programme.
