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, Child Abuse Prevention. 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 Approach. 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. SECTION C, Ethics for Educational Professionals, encourages teachers to promote policies and practices in schools, and provides guidance on implementing the same.

  • The video content in this class was excellent. It helped to be able to see how these concepts would be applied in real situations. The only drawback was that the content was a bit shallow and redundant. It would have been helpful to go into some deeper issues with bullying instead of just how to handle surface-level behavior.

  • The course was very informative, it was very complete and detailed about negligence and child abuse. It will definitely help me at work and it will be helpful to identify, report and to intervene.
