Chaperone and Child Protection for Arts and Entertainment - Professional Chaperone Online Training Course.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online chaperone and child protection training course for those working in arts and entertainment.

Who should take this course?

This course is for local Authority-licensed chaperones. It can also be taken by those working in professional or amateur entertainment industries (for example, dance schools, amateur dramatics, choirs, television and film production companies, and professional theatres) who want to know more about a chaperone’s role and responsibilities, the statutory requirements and how best to protect children.

Note that this course supplements the training of chaperones and does not, in itself, confer accreditation. A chaperone must apply directly to the local authority for a chaperone licence.

Aims and objectives

The aims and objectives of this professional chaperone course are to:

    • Provide learners with the knowledge required to ensure that children and young people are kept safe during arts and entertainment productions.

    Learning outcomes

    Children see the world through their incredible imaginations. This is especially true when they are taking part in exciting activities, such as acting in a theatre production or being involved in a TV programme. But these exciting activities can be risky to children if they are not properly protected.

    By the end of the online professional chaperone course, you will:

    • know the laws in each nation that underpin your responsibilities
    • understand how to recognise possible areas of concern
    • know how to respond to these concerns in the appropriate way
