This is essentially designed for those in leadership and management roles within an aquatic industry organisation and for any role that requires leadership and oversight on child safety, e.g. Child Safety Officer.
It covers the same content as the Frontline version, but also looks more closely at what can be done at an organisational level, in terms of instilling and promoting a child safe culture, using the 10 Child Safe Standards as a guiding framework, and effectively managing risks to children’s safety at all levels.
Of course, we understand that dividing staff into Frontline and Management doesn’t always fit and if you are unsure which version is most appropriate for you or your staff, our suggestion is to take the Management version. Why? It covers exactly the same content, in the same way, as the Frontline version and then goes into other areas. If the additional content is not so relevant, it can be regarded as information only, and the learner can still focus their learning on the parts that are most relevant to them.
The modules are ultimately designed to give those that work in the industry confidence and clarity in managing this extremely important and at times challenging part of their roles.
It assists with the following areas:
- Supervision and general professionalism as Frontline Staff
- Change room and toilets
- Physical contact
- Photography, video and online content
- Organisational guidelines and individual code of conduct.
Having first hand knowledge on the correct way to manage these areas enables you to complete your role as Management staff, in an efficient and professional manner. It will assist you in correctly reporting and making sure that the incident is correctly reported and handled in a timely manner.
