ICMEC Level II Child Protection Workshop: Online Safety
12 March (12:00 – 13:30 London)
Training for School Child Protection Team Members: Level II (Synchronous)
International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC)
In this workshop we’ll discuss various forms of online child sexual violence, exploitation, and bullying, examining child vulnerabilities and potential indicators of online maltreatment. We’ll talk about the dynamics of online sexual abuse and exploitation and the health and mental health impact of these forms of harm. We’ll discuss online safety practices and strategies schools and families can employ to minimise online abuse.
Courses are facilitated by multi-disciplinary content experts. At the end of each workshop, participants will earn a topic-specific certificate that is valid for three years
- Level II workshops are geared solely towards child protection team members. We recommend school child protection teams work together to choose different training for members based on their role at the school, role on the team, and interest so that the team represents a range of expertise.
- Level II courses are for child protection team members who have established child protection programs and have completed Level I or a comparable foundation level training.
This course will be split into 1 x 1.5 hour sessions and will be delivered virtually via Zoom.
It will be delivered live by a multidisciplinary team which includes experts in institutional response and recovery, victim behaviour, crisis communications, trauma informed care and school administration.
