The Department of Education and Skills Inspectorate has advised that it is hosting the following list of seminars for Designated Liaison Person (DLP) and Deputy Designated Liaison Persons in January 2019. The main purpose of the seminars will be to outline the role of the Inspectorate in child protection oversight and particularly with regard to the proposed new model of inspection titled ‘Child Protection and Safeguarding Inspection’ (CPSI), to be rolled out from January/February 2019.
At the time of writing, the INTO is in ongoing dialogue with the Inspectorate in relation to the CPSI model of inspection and in particular will be working with the DES Inspectorate to provide clarity for schools in relation to the requirements of the CPSI.
INTO is working with the DES and management to provide further templates and advice to further assist schools in this regard.
Further information will follow.
Please note that all arrangements and booking for these seminars to be made through the education centres directly and not via INTO.
