Child Protection Certification
PROTECTING THE STUDENTS IN OUR CARE
Protecting the children in our care is our most important job; learning itself depends on a child feeling safe. ECIS Child Protection Certificates set the benchmark for quality training for international schools.
ECIS Child Protection Certificates are designed for three distinct audiences, enabling your school to meet compliance standards for accreditation or inspections for:
- support staff,
- teachers and leaders,
- governors and owners.
The certificates each retail at £40, or licences are free as part of our membership packages, please see below to become a member.
ECIS are proud to be a core member of the International Task Force, with the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) focusing on this important subject. Explore how ICMEC and the International Task Force on Child Protection are working to provide essential school resources via their education portal.
ECIS Child Protection Certificates are aligned to the enhanced Child Protection Standards. To identify which accreditation and inspection agencies have adopted the enhanced Child Protection Standards you can visit the ICMEC report here. The content and legislation have been developed by Farrer and Co, an independent law firm, and their Safeguarding Unit.
