Do you have students who are under the age of 18? If the answer to this is yes, then the new Victorian Child Safe Standards affect you!

Despite numerous presentations about the new standards in 2016, ISANA has identified gaps in their application within the education sector. There is confusion and misunderstanding about guardianship, homestays, under 18 approved accommodation, gap periods between providers, club memberships /events, camps and who is ultimately responsible for the child.

The presenters will also touch on the recent review to the National Code. As all education providers are aware, irrespective of being a large or small organisation the National Code is legally enforceable. Breaches of the National Code by CRICOS registered providers can result in action being taken against the provider under Division 1 in Part 6 of the ESOS Act.

Many organisations subject to the standards will have policies and processes for dealing with under 18’s in place – this PD session will help to address any gaps that exist and will answer all your questions about what it is you have to do.

The focus will be on assisting organisations in integrating the safety of children into their everyday thinking and professional practice, with the ultimate aim of creating measurable outcomes in the future.
