About CHCSS00074 | Child Protection
Learn about the legal and ethical responsibilities of educators when navigating the child protection space. Supports Educators to gain vital knowledge regarding their responsibility to protect children and to identify indicators of harm, trauma and situations of risk to children.
Our courses are delivered 100% online and have been designed to be delivered to those aligned with a workplace to enable easy completion of the practical tasks associated with some components of assessment.
Duration and Process
Duration of each course is determined using the Australian Qualifications Framework as a guide. Skill Set level courses have a 3 month expected duration. This duration may change dependent on the student’s existing skills and knowledge. Students may apply for an extension should they require additional time.
RPL & Credit Transfer
Recognition of prior learning is all about the skills and knowledge you’ve collected through work and life experiences and then transferring them to current training course requirements. Credit transfer also recognises previous formal learning (e.g. other VET qualifications). It uses the copy of the qualification, record of results (which includes details of the issuing RTO and the date issued), statement of attainment previously issued to the student for each unit of competency, or authenticated VET transcripts downloaded from the USI (Unique Student Identifier) platform. All courses can be completed using an assessment only pathway through RPL in Traxion if the candidate possesses sufficient skills and experience as determined by the assessor.
The CHCSS00074 Child Protection is currently being funded by the Queensland State Government’s Higher Level Skills for eligible participants. Eligible students must pay a Co-Contribution Fee.
