Online Child Protection training feedback:  "I was able to purchase it with no problems receiving a prompt reply allowing me to commence the training.  A very professional set-up. I enjoyed and learnt from the whole process and I will sign back in later and complete the Essential Child Protection Workshop."

Absolutely BRILLIANT Feedback from last night!!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! to all you guys at In Safe Hands - these girls here have really high standards and this morning everyone was raving about it and telling me how much they got out of it. Thank you so much and can you please pass my thanks on to Mick as well. The staff were all telling me it really opened up their eyes and they have never had child protection training like this before – they got to see a different side of it and don’t take things for granted. The information about reporting was fantastic and the 7 Steps are awesome. We’ve been using others for our child protection training but after last night we won’t do that again – some of the more experienced staff said this is the first time they’ve really learnt something – and they absolutely loved it! It’s amazing what a difference your practical experience makes to the lesson!

Julie Price / Manager Workforce Partnership

The Health and Community Services Workforce Council (Workforce Council) is responsible for the delivery of the Professional Support Coordinator (PSC) program in Queensland. This program is funded by the Australian Government to deliver professional development and support to child care services across Queensland.  As part of this program the Workforce Council manages a Panel of Providers for subcontractors that we utilise regularly. The rigorous process for getting onto this panel involves an open tender process with selection criteria based on DEEWR requirements and subcontractor contracts and reports based on DEEWR template. Prospective providers are asked to document their area of expertise and the modes by which they can deliver professional development.

Michael’s submitted a strong application and we have used him extensively to deliver right across Queensland. Michael Pecic has been on our Panel of Providers since its inception 4 years ago to deliver Child Protection sessions to educators in long day care, family day care and outside school hours care.  In 2011 Michael successfully delivered twenty-eight Child Protection sessions for PSC which included both face to face and on-line utilising the Illuminate platform.

Workforce Council has always been very happy with Michael’s work as he is flexible in contract negotiation, receives very positive feedback from participants and is willing to travel where the need arises. In 2011 Michael travelled as far afield as Miles, Charleville, Hughenden, Julia Creek, Longreach and Weipa for the PSC program.  I would not hesitate to recommend Michael for his delivery of Child Protection professional development for the children’s service sector.

Over the past year Goodstart Early learning has formed a positive relationship with Tracey Jackson and Michael Pecic from "In Safe HAnds".  As we continue to grow in this space of child protection for our services we require specialised advice and support, of which Tracey and Michael have provided this in the most professional manner.  Tracey and Michael have been working with many of our Queensland services to provide expert advice on child protection matters.  We have received feedback from our educators that the training completed has been of a very high standard and they have gained a wealth of practical knowledge.

Helen B

After working in the Early Childhood Industry for over 20 years and participating in Child Protection courses most years, I have to say that this was the first that I actually enjoyed! I especially loved the emphasis on validating children's feelings everyday in every situation. Thank you for keeping real-life stories to a minimum and only sharing those that were necessary to make a point. I've been in countless training sessions where the facilitator has focused primarily on the sick perpetrators and used numerous photos to identify them and describe how they groomed their victims - totally unnecessary and in many cases harmful to colleagues for whom child abuse has been a real-life event. Great job in developing the 7 steps and finally I can say that I will be able to implement some practical tips into my workplace. Thank you and kind regards
