Technical Member Child Safety Course
As part of Gymnastics Australia’s (GA) ongoing commitment to child safety, all Technical Members, other than those Technical Members in Victoria* who have completed the Gymnastics Victoria Child Protection Online Course, will be required to complete the GA online Child Safety course, prior to 2019 renewals.
NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHILD SAFE ONLINE COURSE CAN BE FOUND HERE
The GA online Child Safety Course – developed by Bravehearts, specifically for gymnastics Technical Members – will provide key information about the prevention of harmful behaviours, indicators of harm and support for those affected by child abuse, neglect or sexual assault.
These important child safety topics, covered throughout the online course, will help equip coaches and judges to provide a fun and safe environment for all children and young people participating in gymnastics.
The online Child Safety Course will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and can be accessed at no cost to GA-affiliated Technical Members through GA’s Learning Management System (LMS).
Once the online Child Safety Course has been completed a certificate and two (2) updating points will be issued via the LMS. Each Technical Member will be required to provide this certificate (or the GV Child Protection Online Course certificate) prior to 2019 renewal.
The online Child Safety Course will be available at the beginning of November 2018.
Registration for the online Child Safety Course, will be via the LMS, with further details being distributed directly to TM’s upon launch of the course.
