CAECE WORKSHOP: Everything you need to know about Mandatory Reporting

Mason’s Law makes it mandatory for childcare educators to report suspected cases of child sexual and physical abuse; these much needed changes come into effect July 2017. This interactive workshop aims to support and provide information for mandated reporters by ensuring they are aware of their legal responsibilities to report known or suspected child abuse and neglect in Queensland, how to recognize indicators (red flags) of the different types of abuse and neglect, and how to make a notification. This training is for participants who work with children and/or families.


The key learning outcomes include building the capacity of early years educators to:

  • identify child protection issues in all its forms including its traumatic impact on children
  • identify the types of concerns for the safety, health and wellbeing of a child that should be reported
  • know how and to whom to report those concerns, including mandatory reporting guidelines
  • build trusting relationships with families where there may be concerns for children’s health, safety and wellbeing
