AISNSW Child Protection Conference 2023

Keeping Children and Young People Safe, Together


Child abuse and neglect is one of Australia's greatest social and public health crises.

The inaugural AISNSW Child Protection Conference 2023, Keeping Children and Young People Safe, Together, is an opportunity to bring together a broad range of school staff, practitioners and speakers interested in developing new strategies to manage student's and staff's safety and wellbeing in schools.

The Conference will provide an opportunity to engage with the issues of consent and respectful relationships, ecologically sustainable child protection, vaping in schools and problematic and harmful sexual behaviours. The Conference will assist you in developing a deeper understanding of the approaches needed in schools to identify, manage, and respond to safeguarding concerns while creating a space for thought-provoking engagement with a range of speakers and presenters who are experts in their field, and allow staff in schools to focus on effective child safe practices, not just compliance.

By attending the AISNSW Child Protection Conference 2023, you will:

  • Apply the current and innovative research and trends in child protection from experts in their fields. 
  • Support children and young people that have engaged in or have been subjected to problematic and harmful sexual behaviours.
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the current child protection concerns schools are faced with.
  • Apply practical strategies and solutions to achieve clear and positive outcomes for keeping students safe.

This professional learning aligns with the NESA list of approved Elective PD activities/courses.
