New child protection training requirements
Following changes to the National Law from 1 October 2017, new child protection training requirements have been introduced nationally for nominated supervisors and for the “person in day-to-day charge” at early childhood services.
The NSW approved courses on child protection training have not changed. Prior to the latest changes to the National Law, NSW was the only jurisdiction that had a specific provision requiring nominated supervisors to have completed an approved child protection course. However, this requirement has now been applied nationally.
This means that the update to note for NSW is that both persons in day-to-day charge, and all nominated supervisors, must complete an approved child protection course.
