CHILD PROTECTION OFFICERTUTOR COURSE

There is a Child Protection Officer Tutor Course coming up on February
23rd in Pairc Na hEireann, Birmingham.

We are looking for any Club members to attend, who would then be able
to give Child Protection Officer Courses within the County and then
hopefully increase our number of Child Protection Officers.

If any Club member is interested in going on the Course and thereafter
running Child Protection Officer Courses within the County, please let
me know as soon as possible.
