WCCC are working with the National Child Safeguarding Programme; Early Learning and Care, to support you all with updating your information and skills in relation to the Children First Act and the responsibilities of individual Childcare Practitioners and Managers in relation to this. We are offering 2 separate Briefing Sessions open to all staff in your childcare service however, as this is National Training delivered by the National Tusla Children First Information and Advice Officers the places are limited and will therefore be allocated on a first come first served basis. Staff can avail of one or both of these training sessions.
The session outlines are as follows:
Online Briefing Session – Mandated Person
15th March 10.30am – 12.30pm Edwina Flavin
This session is aimed at mandated persons in Early Learning and Care services. The session explains the roles and responsibilities of mandated persons under the Children First Act, 2015, including understanding legal obligations and making reports to Tusla. Priority on this session should be given to mandated persons who may be new to their role or who require a refresher on the roles and responsibilities of mandated persons. This session is not open to staff who only work as School Age Childcare practitioners as they are not mandated persons under the Children First Act 2015.
