Protecting Children & Vulnerable Adults course covers important concepts related to your duty of care towards children and vulnerable adults in our community.
Learners will be taught about common types of abuse, how to identify vulnerable adults, maintaining professional boundaries, and their legal responsibilities. They will also be taught about risk management plans, which aim to keep children and vulnerable adults safe from sexual, physical, psychological, emotional, neglect, and spiritual harm.
The course has six modules that are completed online at the learner’s convenience, with assessments and results given at the end of each
module. Other features include a glossary of key terms, a help menu, and a bookmark function.
This course has been designed into different versions specifically for the varying types of Catholic organisations, and developed in partnership with the National Committee for Professional Standards - a joint committee of Catholic Religious Australia and the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.
