On 18 October 2022, SEGi College Kuala Lumpur’s School of Education conducted a workshop for their Bachelor of Arts in Early Years Education and Diploma in Early Childhood Education students on the topic Keeping Children Safe from Harm.
A hundred and twenty students from all of SEGi’s campuses took part in and benefitted from the workshop conducted by Hailey Trenchard from the United Kingdom, who is currently working at LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd.
Keeping children safe from harm is a prime topic in every community. Trenchard kept the students engaged and interested while they learned about their role in child protection and safeguarding as a teacher within the Malaysian context, the difference between child protection and safeguarding, the myths and facts of child abuse, and the differences between the UK and Malaysian standards and practices in this area.
The workshop ended with a short question-and-answer session and all the participants received an e-certificate.
