To meet the updated Victorian Child Safe Standards, which come into force on 1 July 2022, CompliSpace has significantly revised its Victorian Child Protection Module.
The revised Program is now called the Child Safe Program, or the Child Safeguarding Program for Catholic schools.
CompliSpace has developed a number of resources in support. These resources provide guidance on additional steps that your school can take to get ready for the new Program and to embed it in your school’s child safe practices.
