Merseyside ACF: Child Protection Training

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am making this request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

As I have previously mentioned (your ref: 091636-003), back in October 2012 the Liverpool Echo ran an article called "Three sacked in disturbing Merseyside army cadet cruelty probe". The article explained how three Merseyside ACF CFAVs had been disciplined after a cadet was allegedly assaulted at Crowborough Camp in August 2012.

I am now led to believe that as a result of these allegations the CEO of Merseyside ACF delivered a "morning of education and counselling" at HQ Merseyside ACF on 22nd October 2012. During this session the CEO was focusing on the "Principles and Safe Working Practices when Working with Children".

Under the terms of the 2000 Act, please now provide the following information:

1. Copies of any course materials that were used in the CEO Merseyside ACF's "education and counselling" session of 22nd October 2012. This includes any images, presentations or handouts used or provided during the session.
2. Information, in general terms, about the training/qualifications/experience (or lack thereof) required for an ACF CEO to deliver "education and counselling" on child protection matters.

In accordance with section 11 of the 2000 Act, I require your response to be delivered in PDF file format to the return email address associated with this request.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Jones
