***For the attention of Ireland-based Dojos only***
Step 1 of 2
To ensure your Dojo is taking all possible steps to safeguard children, all Ireland-based Dojos must by law adopt the CoderDojo Child Protection Policy before going ahead with Garda Vetting.
This document is made for use by all staff members and volunteers of the CoderDojo Foundation, including any youth volunteers between the ages of 16 -18. Please find the Child Protection Policy attached to this help article.
The objectives of the CoderDojo Child Protection Policy are:
- That all CoderDojo Foundation staff members and volunteers can be made aware of their responsibilities and duties when interacting with young people.
- That all CoderDojo Foundation activities and events involving young people are run safely and in accordance with appropriate child protection guidelines as outlined in this document.
It is required under Irish legislation that all Dojos operating in Ireland read this document. Once you and your Dojo volunteers have read the Child Protection Policy, you will then need to sign the ‘Confirmation of Adoption of Child Protection Policy’. See instructions for this next step here.
