Training and Services
The ongoing delivery of child protection training is crucial if we are to have a society that knows how to protect its children and young people, take action when needed and follow up to ensure their safety.
Child Matters makes every effort to ensure child protection training is available to as many people as possible throughout the country.
Child Matters currently provides a range of training including:
- New Zealand Diploma in Child Protection (NZQA Level 5) – year-long course
- 5 day Child Protection Studies Programme (NZQA Level 3)
- 1 day Child Protection Workshops
- Seminars in partnership with other organisations
Three levels of service delivery structure
Workforce – delivery of child protection training, policy and consultancy services to support the capability development of the children’s workforce
Community – assisting community organisations (not for profit, sporting community, volunteer organisations) to implement child centred policies, processes and safe working practices
Families and Whānau – to engage with community collaborations that support families and whānau to create safe environments for children and young people
