Specialized Training Materials on Child Protection for UN Police - Supporting Materials
The present Specialized Training Materials on Child Protection for UN Police were developed in late-2015 and 2016. Currently more than 90 % of uniformed personnel are deployed in peace operations with protection mandates. Accordingly DPKO-ITS provides a range of related training programs, such as Protection of Civilians (operational and tactical level), Conflict Related Sexual Violence and Sexual and Gender Based Violence. These subjects are closely linked to this training program (e.g. legal framework, peacekeeping context, coordination with other actors), and it is advised to use the above mentioned training programs in conjunction with the one on Child Protection. This will allow users to be well prepared for delivery, and to compose an enhanced and tailored training program for the given target group.Please note that law enforcement officials who are selected for this training should have completed the CPTM training as a prerequisite for taking this course.Course Content/Methodology The materials are divided into modules to ensure flexibility in training delivery:• Introduction to Child Protection for UN Police • Module 1: Children in Peacekeeping Contexts • Module 2: Framework for Child Protection • Module 3: Safeguarding Children • Module 4: Coordination with Other Actors in the Child Protection System • Module 5: Monitoring and Reporting • Module 6: Prevention and Diversion Measures • Module 7: Arrest and Detention • Module 8: Interviewing a Child • Module 9: Conclusion - Dos and Don’ts for UN PoliceEach module aims at discussing one topic and providing learners with new knowledge and skills in child protection. A short quiz accompanies each module and a final quiz is provided at the end of the training to assess learners’ immediate acquisition of new knowledge and skills. The training materials are primarily designed for a three-day, pre-deployment training for Individual Police Officers (IPOs) but can also be used as in-mission training for already deployed IPOs or for Formed Police Units (FPUs), once adapted to their specific needs. The total training time for all modules is around 18 hours. The approximate training time is indicated for each module. It is suggested to conduct the training over a three day period.
