Course Overview
Creating a safe work environment requires careful planning and organizational commitment. Policies must be implemented; Assessments are needed to determine the level of risk and the appropriate security strategy. Fundamental safety and security preparations and procedures must be put in place to help prevent incidents or minimize the effect of those that do occur and guidelines for personal safety and security are needed to provide a framework for individual action and response and to increase confidence and awareness.

– Directly in programmes

– Indirectly in a Management Role
– In communities that have children
– In institutions for children
– In monitoring and evaluating programmes that involve children
It is hoped that programme managers will use it with their teams and discuss how the programme can learn and move forward.
The Course provides a tool for learning and reflection suitable for people who are in the formative stages of setting up a programme, identifying good practice that will help to create a balanced programme. It can also be used by those who are already involved in a child-related programme, from small, local projects to large, national programmes.
