Safeguarding@TSA now available
9 August 2020
Last week, our Quality and Safeguarding (Q&S) team launched the new national Safeguarding@TSA training course.
Safeguarding@TSA training is a 30 minute mandatory training course for all TSA personnel – regardless of what role they hold. The training is specific to TSA’s national safeguarding policies and procedures and includes important information on how to protect children and young people; prevent abuse and take action.
Safeguarding@TSA is separate and different from the Safeguarding Principles training. Safeguarding Principles is training catered for those in child-related roles and is additional and complementary to Safeguarding@TSA.
As a manager of volunteers, you will need to know the following key points:
- When Safeguarding@TSA launches 10 August for volunteers, active volunteers who require a WWCC for their role, and who do not have current Keeping Children Safe or Safe Salvos, will need to complete Safeguarding@TSA within 4 weeks.
- From 1 September, all other active volunteers who do not have current Keeping Children Safe or Safe Salvos will need to complete Safeguarding@TSA within 4 weeks
- Non-active volunteers: when a volunteer resumes volunteering (post-COVID-19) they will have 4 weeks to complete Safeguarding@TSA if they do not have current Keeping Children Safe or Safe Salvos
How do volunteers complete Safeguarding@TSA?
- Safeguarding@TSA includes closed captions of different languages such as Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Arabic and Farsi. If required, please tell your volunteers to turn them on for each section
- If your volunteers have any issues with completing e-learning modules, please speak to your Safeguarding Consultant. Their details can be found here.
