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 the first section, Recognizing and Preventing Child Abuse.  The course highlights characteristics of abuse, as well as how an educator can respond.
