CPSL Training and Events
CPSL training and learning opportunities strengthen the awareness, knowledge, skills and capacity of Catholic Church entities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
*COVID-19 and CPSL training and events*
With the emergence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), CPSL want to assure you that we are committed to continuing to provide services to our stakeholders. The safety and wellbeing of both our staff and our stakeholders is our highest priority and we are monitoring the evolving outbreak situation closely.
CPSL is bringing scheduled safeguarding training sessions online. This includes our NCSS Introductory Session for Leaders and Applying the NCSS Workshops.
We are still offering 'bespoke' training sessions for a range of organisations - if you would like to discuss how CPSL can assist your organisation or ministry, please give us a call.
If anyone has any concerns or questions about CPSL training and events, please feel free to contact our team on 1300 603 411 or by email at email@example.com
Catholic Professional Standards Ltd is committed to fostering a culture of safety and care for children and vulnerable adults within the Catholic Church of Australia.
The aim of the CPSL Learning & Development Strategy is to strengthen awareness, knowledge, capability and capacity of Church entities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults. The strategy is designed to provide new information, support and not replicate work already being undertaken by Church entities in areas of safeguarding.
The strategy was developed using feedback obtained from Church leaders and personnel, child sexual abuse, survivors and advocates, safeguarding experts and statutory authorities. It is articulated to support Catholic entities to improve their safeguarding approach in accordance with the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and the first three years of auditing and reporting under the CPSL Audit Framework.
This session takes place over three modules, over two days (April 14 & 15). This session is designed for Catholic Church Authorities (bishops, leaders of religious institutes, trustees of ministerial PJPs), accompanied by members of their leadership teams. PLEASE NOTE - this session is a requirement under the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards (Indicator 5.3.2) - if you have completed this session in 2019 or in 2020, you do not need to repeat, unless you are new in a leadership role or have moved to a leadership role in a different entity. Please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to clarify.
