CHCPRT025 Identify and Report Children and Young People at Risk

Adults who work or volunteer in child-related services require the necessary knowledge and skills to recognise specific signs and symptoms that indicate a child in your care may be at risk of harm, as well as how to accurately report to and collaborate with relevant authorities, and finally how to support a child throughout the process.

Studying the CHCPRT025 Identify and report children and young people at risk course offers a range of benefits, helping individuals gain essential knowledge and skills to initially identify the child, support the child, handle the situation ethically, engage with appropriate authorities, and accurately complete reporting documentation.

  • Identifying children at risk,
  • Behavioural indicators,
  • Physical indicators,
  • Mandatory reporting,
  • Referrals and information exchange
  • Current legislation and duty or care including the Keep Them Safe strategy
