Managing risk, enhancing welfare: the world of under-18s
Date: Tuesday 9 October 2018
Time: 9am – 12pm
Location: ICC, Sydney
Registration fee: $300/$355
International under-18s are a growing cohort in Australia. While they have always been core to the schools sector, other providers have less-established welfare models in place. Regardless of sector, all providers who enrol under-18s have an obligation to comply with the new requirements of Standard 5 of the National Code 2018.
Although younger students can have a parent or relative take responsibility for their welfare, many nominate a registered provider. In such cases, what resources are required to ensure adequate monitoring is in place? What welfare and accommodation arrangements are required before a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW) letter can be issued? Is it best to take care of these arrangements in-house, outsource to third parties or a combination of both?
This workshop will unpack the new regulatory and policy framework for this important cohort. You will explore good practice policies and procedures for:
- approving and monitoring accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements
- selecting, screening and monitoring third parties
- maintaining up-to-date records, minimising potential breaches, and more.
Key interest area: Admissions and compliance (A&C)
Other interest areas: Schools (SCH), Students (STU)
