The Institute for Consecrated Life in Asia (ICLA), in collaboration with the Centre for Child Protection (CCP) of the Gregorian University in Rome, offers an E-learning Course on the Protection of Children.



The E-learning course is intended to raise awareness and to provide formation aimed at safeguarding children and vulnerable persons by promoting prevention measures against sexual abuse and other kinds of abuse. By raising awareness and increasing knowledge of the importance of such efforts, we hope to create a healthy and safe environment for them.


Our vision is a society, where minors and vulnerable persons, are safe within the Catholic Church and society.



The E-learning course is blended with online resources and face-to-face classroom sessions.

Follow the online units of the Centre for Child Protection, Gregorian University, Rome.

Access will be given to the enrolled student.

The subject will be given in the face-to-face sessions at ICLA every alternate Saturday from 4 November 2017 to 12 May 2018 by the Project Coordinator, who is a graduate from the Institute of Psychology, Gregorian University and who did Diploma in Child Protection from the same Institute.

The course is highly recommended for Formators, Priest/Religious/Lay Counselors and those designing programs for child protection.
