Child Safe Standards

Our Child Safe Standards (CSS) online course, which we have developed in partnership with Global Vision Media (GVM), is available from 26 April, 2017.

The course is designed to help Local Government understand the importance of being informed of their responsibilities and obligations under Child Safe Standards and the need for them to be able to demonstrate how they have addressed these.

It was developed with the assistance of staff from Whitehorse City Council and other HR and L&D/OD practitioners who provided their expert input to ensure the relevance and quality of the course content.

The course is SCORM compliant, meets all accessibility standards, provides reporting to ensure that evidence of compliance is available when needed, adapts to all devices and can be used with any LMS or as standalone, i.e. hosted.


All Councils are invited to trial the course for three days before making a decision about taking it up.

We are also providing webinars on the CSS course on Monday 1 May and Wednesday 3 May at 11am. Please use  to let us know if you can join us. This short webinar will walk you through the course and how you can use it to best effect in your Council. After the webinar you will receive a three day demo account to view the course.

If you are unable to participate in the webinar, or just want to go straight to the demo please email Rebecca Stevenson
