Following the recent amendment to the Irish Constitution (Article 42A) and the introduction of a range of new Child Protection Legislation, such as the Children First Act 2015 and the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015, Child Protection Practitioners have identified the need for further training to carry out their roles and responsibilities within the current legal framework.
In response to this, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP in collaboration with the School of Social Work and Social Policy at Trinity College Dublin are pleased to announce a new ONLINE Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course in Legal Training for Child Protection and Welfare Practitioners.

This course is also relevant to designated liaison persons, mandated persons and child safeguarding officers as described in the Children First Act 2015
Participants of the course will be able to access relevant and up to date online learning materials at their convenience over a four-week period from 27th October 2020.
