Child Safe Commitment

South West TAFE is a child safe organisation and is passionate about the safety and wellbeing of all members of the SWTAFE community, especially children and younger people.

All students enrolled, and any child visiting South West TAFE, have a right to feel safe and be safe. The wellbeing of children in our care will always be our first priority and we have zero tolerance to child abuse. We aim to create a child safe and child friendly environment where children feel safe and are free to enjoy life to the full without any concern for their safety.

We demonstrate this commitment through the implementation of a Child Safe Program and through the promotion of safety of all children including the cultural safety for Aboriginal children, children from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and by providing a safe environment for children with a disability or LGBTQIA+ students.

South West TAFE regards its child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance and as such, is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure alignment with all relevant child protection laws and regulations, and to maintain a child safe culture
