Tusla have launched an e-learning programme, Introduction to Children First, an interactive course that provides introductory information on the new legal requirements and it recommended that all staff and providers of early years services complete it.
The programme takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete but it can be done in a number of sittings. The programme will allow you to log back in and resume where you left off. It covers topics including:
Recognising and reporting child abuse;
The role of mandated persons;
The responsibilities of organisations working with children to safeguard children;
The role of designated liaison persons.
