Safeguarding / Child Protection

Generative and collaborative Peer Learning Community for Safeguarding / Child Protection

Working in the field of safeguarding and child protection in international school contexts is one of the most rewarding roles any educator can have. It is also highly challenging and complex. This community will strive to create a safe and collaborative space for all its members to learn and grow together. Through sharing resources, examining case studies, reviewing latest research and problem-solving, you will gain meaningful insights into how best to safeguard students in your contexts, while broadening your perspective from other professionals experiencing similar challenges.

Together, we will tackle the tough questions such as:

  • How do I safeguard students whilst also catering to the needs of Transgender and Gender Non-conforming individuals?
  • How do we navigate national legislation that conflicts with the cultural context of our students?

Most importantly, the focus of this community will be driven by you and your needs. Sign up to be part of this exciting community of change!
