What do I have to do?
As a Child Link Authoriser, you need to ensure that all nominated Child Link users have been authorised in Child Link and are ready to undertake training in early 2022. Training is mandatory to access Child Link.
The Department of Education and Training will work with participating organisations to identify preferred training dates and times for Child Link users, within a set timeframe. The Department will seek to accommodate user training preferences where possible.
Users will receive an email in December 2021 with more details about their upcoming training session and how to prepare.
What will Child Link training cover?
Child Link users will be required to complete a three-hour training session with other Child Link users from the respective sites. The training session will include breaks and will take place via interactive webinar, facilitated by a team of experienced educators.
Training will cover topics, such as:
- how to log in, use and navigate within Child Link
- responsibilities and obligations when using Child Link
- how Child Link can add value to professional practice
- key cultural safety considerations when using Child Link
- requirements for accessing Child Link safely and appropriately, and
- where to go for more support and resources.
Participants will be assessed on the material covered at the end of the training session. Successful completion will enable activation of a users Child Link access.
During training, there will also be opportunities for users to collaborate with others across sectors and explore how Child Link can be used in professional practice to support the wellbeing and safety of children.
