International Task Force on Child Protection June 2016 Report: Outcomes & Recommendations

2016

(ITFCP) The work of the International Task Force on Child Protection has been undertaken by a coalition of 90+ volunteers, leaders of international education organizations, school leaders, counsellors, business and security managers and teachers, school accreditation, inspection and recruitment professionals, working collaboratively across professions with dedicated law enforcement officials and the medical community. This broad collaboration and diverse perspective from a variety of roles resulted in the creation of ICMEC's Education Portal, accreditation and inspection agency New Standards for Child Protection, and Essential Recruiting Practices following a pilot at 75 international schools. The ITFCP continues to work towards an Interpol International Police Certificate for educator background checks.
