Event description
This one-hour workshop for Catholic safeguarding professionals explores NCSS Standard 5 - obligations, compliance and verification of checks

About this event

Managing risk for organisations working with children requires a genuine commitment to child safety and a willingness to manage risk proactively.

Standard 5 of the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards (NCSS) requires that people working with children are suitable and supported to reflect child safeguarding values in practice.

Oho is a social enterprise that helps organisations strengthen child safety and risk management practices by automating the revalidation of Working with Children Checks and other safeguarding accreditations.

This workshop presented by Oho will explore and clarify the requirements of Child Safety – Standard 5, obligations, compliance, and verification of checks. Topics covered included in the presentation are:

  • Community Context
  • Obligations
  • Requirements by Jurisdiction
  • Requirements of Organisations
  • Penalties and Offenses
  • Compliance
  • Community Expectations

There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the conclusion of the workshop.

*Registrations close Tuesday September 21 at 11.59pm*
