2024 A Plan to Protect® Refresher (13-18)
This annual Plan to Protect® Refresher Training (13-18) is designed for those who work with youth. Annual refresher training helps to reinforce and update previous abuse prevention training. This training meets insurance requirements and is part of striving for the HIGHEST STANDARD of protection.
Please Note: If your programs include children, volunteers/staff should take the 0-18 course.
1) Make sure you are using a computer (not a phone, or Ipad) to complete the course.
2) Make sure you are using Google Chrome to complete the course (not Safari, or internet explorer, or Firefox).
3) Our school will allow you to continue after watching 85% of the video. If you switch tabs or put it in the background, or are not active during the video, it will not track properly and you will have to re-watch the video in full.
This training contains the following modules:
- Abuse Awareness Part 2 ~ In this module we will discuss the definition of abuse so that we are all working off of the same understanding. We will also hear staggering statistics of the prevalence of abuse.
- Best Practices in Prevention ~ This module overviews the most common best safeguarding practices.
- Youth Protection Procedures ~ This module overviews safeguarding practices for individuals working with teens 13-18 years old.
- High-Risk Activities ~ This module overviews guidelines for reducing the risk of abuse, injury and harm when engaging in high-risk and off-site activities.
- Technology ~ This module overviews guidelines for using technology, including but not limited to online engagement, communicating online, social media, photography and computer use.
- Sexual Misconduct, Harassment and Abuse ~ This module focuses on the misuse of power differentials that lead to sexual misconduct, harassment and abuse.
- Definitions of Abuse ~ As we conclude the training, we will unpack the definitions of the different forms of abuse.
- Reporting Child Abuse ~ The duty to report child abuse is the most important of all the laws that relate to a child's protection. This duty to report applies to each one of us, whether we have a mandatory duty to report or an ethical duty to report abuse.
- Responding to Vulnerable Adult Abuse ~ Unlike child abuse where we have a duty to report child abuse if an adult discloses they are being abused, we respond with care and empower them to exercise their own agency. This module equips the learner to respond appropriately when we learn of abuse against adults.
After each module you will be directed to the testing component of the training. This will include a short case study and quiz questions. You will need to complete the quiz with a score of 80% prior to moving onto the next module. Once you have successfully completed the course you will receive a certificate. A certificate will provide proof to your organization that you have successfully completed the course. This will also demonstrate that you understand the importance of vulnerable sector protection and abuse prevention.
