Compulsory Child Welfare Coordinator in all schools from next September
Monday, November 22, 2021 @ 8:09 PM

ALL SCHOOLS in Spain will have a compulsory 'Child Welfare Coordinator' on the staff team in accordance with legislation introduced in the spring to protect youngsters against violence.

The rôle has been created by the ministry of social rights and Agenda 2030, led by Unidas Podemos' Ione Belarra, and the job description has been agreed after meetings with all regional governments.

According to Sra Belarra, the 'Child Welfare Coordinator' will be responsible for 'implementing plans and procedures in the field of education, leisure and sport for listening to children and teenagers and their warnings and worries about any type of physical, psychological or verbal violence, and for communicating the risks the child faces'.

Those employed in young people's leisure and sports facilities will go under the name of 'Protection Delegate', although their purpose will be exactly the same.

Regional education authorities will largely determine the functions their Child Welfare Coordinators will perform, and whether these will be nominated among existing school staff or an outside party employed.
