Join us to receive expert guidance and knowledge on a wide range of topics, including policy development, managing allegations, addressing harmful sexual behaviour in schools, affluent neglect, and the vital role of the curriculum in safeguarding students.

You’ll connect with fellow CIS members with similar roles and responsibilities as you share challenges, collaborate, and explore strategies.

The workshop is packed with vital and well-established workshop content plus newly developed and timely material.

You can expect to:

  • Learn from exceptional speakers with deep knowledge, expertise, and direct experience

  • Leave with a shared understanding of child protection in international schools—challenges, expectations, and opportunities

  • Feel more aware of your school’s responsibilities regarding child protection—what you need to work on to make your school a safer place

  • Be well-equipped with a clear idea of the actions to take in the coming weeks, months, and years to develop and strengthen child protection and safeguarding practices in your school

    • safer recruitment 

    • how sex offenders operate 

    • child-on-child abuse 

    • communicating in a crisis
