Child Safe Organisations NSW eLearning

The NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian has launched a suite of Child Safe eLearning packages.

The Commissioner sincerely commends the work of the Children’s Guardian, NSW, in developing readily accessible eLearning resources and encourages organisations across Western Australia to utilise them in their learning and development approaches.

About the eLearning modules

Child Safe Organisations training has been highlighted by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse as having a very important role to play preventing abuse and neglect of children and young people in organisations. Professor Stephen Smallbone of Griffith University has worked with the NSW Children’s Guardian to develop this eLearning.

eLearning modules:

  • Introduction
  • Organisational culture
  • Risk management
  • Situational Prevention
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Recruitment Processes
  • Reporting Allegations and Incidents
  • Working with Children Checks*

*Please note the modules on the Working With Children Checks and Reporting Allegations and Incidents refer to NSW Legislation and requirements, however, they also provide generic information and resources. For information on the Working With Children Check in Western Australia, visit Safeguarding Children

Each module takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete.


Those who complete and pass all eight modules receive a Certificate of Completion Child Safe eLearning for Managers. 

Those passing six of the eight modules (i.e. not Recruitment Processes & Working with Children Checks) receive a Certificate of Completion Child Safe eLearning for Frontline Staff. 

Leaders who review the training and decide it is a suitable learning resource, can request staff to complete the free training and provide a Certificate of Completion to the organisation.
