New Child Protection CPD

The Department of Education and Skills issued the Revised Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post Primary Schools in December 2017 underpinned by the revised guidelines ‘Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children 2017’.


Due to demand, the PDST have developed a suite of online presentations and accompanying resources in lieu of face-to-face Child Protection seminars which cannot take place at present. The aim of these presentations is to support you in navigating the Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post Primary Schools, in order for you to understand and fulfil your role as Designated Liaison Person (DLP) or Deputy Designated Liaison Person (DDLP).


This three part series of E-learning Presentations closely follows the structure and content of our Child Protection Seminars which were facilitated by PDST in Spring 2020. They can be accessed openly at a time that suits you, and there is no need to register.


We recommend that you engage with all three presentations in sequential order. You can revisit this series of presentations as often as required.
