Augeo collaborates with many different parties and always develops its online training courses in collaboration with experts in the field.
Politicians and policymakers
Augeo brings the issues of child abuse and domestic violence to the attention of politicians and policymakers on a regular basis. We stay abreast of developments and make a constructive contribution to the development of practical solutions. Our aim is to have a long-term impact.
Augeo also brings the issue of child abuse to the attention of key social partners, such as professionals, professional associations and the media. We organise our own expert meetings and take part in expert meetings organised by other parties. We contribute to initiatives by other organisations active in the field and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that want to make a statement or provide an overview. Among other things, we make our own positions clearly known and report on issues connected with children’s rights and child abuse.
Children’s Rights Collective
Augeo is a member of the child abuse working group of the Dutch Children’s Rights Collective (the 'Kinderechtencollectief'). The other members of the working group are the Bernard van Leer Foundation, Defence for Children, Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland, the Netherlands Youth Institute and the Trimbos Institute.
Augeo develops in collaboration with others
All our online training courses and e-lectures are developed in collaboration with experts in the field as well as with key national and international partners.
The Augeo academy works with a range of partners in other countries to develop online learning materials. As in the Netherlands, this is always done in collaboration with the professional sector for which the course is designed. One of our key partners is the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN), a network organisation linking professionals in almost 100 countries in tackling child abuse. ISPCAN and Augeo academy have produced a number of courses with the assistance of international experts. These courses include ‘Multidisciplinary teams in the field of child abuse and neglect’, and ‘The importance of medicine in evaluating child sexual abuse’. A number of pilot projects are currently underway in the United States and Germany.
