Teachers in many countries are required by law to report certain types of child abuse and neglect to relevant child-protection authorities. Some nations are on the cusp of introducing mandatory reporting obligations, or have policy-based duties for reporting.

It will also help you to understand your role as a reporter. Free to register. Fee to certificate.
