Children at Risk Learning Portal

Free online training and resources for health professionals working with vulnerable children.

Welcome to learning more about the important role that health professionals play in protecting vulnerable children.

The training modules on this portal were developed for all health professionals working in hospitals, general practice, primary care and community based health settings in Victoria.

Interactive training modules are tailored to each of these health settings and are free to access via the log in:

  • Protecting Children: Introductory course on identifying and responding to child abuse and neglect
  • Responding to vulnerability: A guide for general practitioners
  • Responding to vulnerability: A guide for health and community services providers

By completing the training you will:

  • Strengthen your awareness of the signs of vulnerability for children
  • Increase your confidence and knowledge of engaging with parents about child vulnerability
  • Better understand how to respond to suspected child abuse and your mandatory obligations
  • Access additional resources that increase your knowledge of child abuse and neglect

Please note that the Working with Vulnerable Children module is currently being updated and is expected to be complete in May 2021. Users should instead complete Responding to vulnerability: Guide for Health and Community Providers.
