Course Description:

Protecting children is the role and responsibility of every adult. Be it in or outside of school, educators need to be aware of all red flags indicating a child is being abused. The course Child Abuse Prevention tackles this very sensitive issue and aims to equip teachers with the essentials of recognizing and preventing abuse to maintain safe and secure learning environments. Every educator should be aware of the different signs, symptoms and indicators of suspected child abuse and this is the focus of SECTION A, Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse. The course highlights characteristics of abuse, as well as how an educator can respond. Bullying is a common issue that is seen in every classroom, school and playground. How do we respond to bullying or stop it? How do we help children who are on the receiving end and discipline the bullies? Learn more about this in SECTION B, Bullying: The Golden Rule Solution. The third section of this course stresses on professional behaviors and ethical standards that teachers may adopt, that will help promote a safe environment for students to learn in.
