Risk Management: CompliSpace

Working with ABSA, CompliSpace has created a Boarding Program that helps Boarding Schools meet their legal and regulatory obligations. The Program is mapped to the Boarding Standard and includes training and testing to help transform policy into cultural change within a school.  

About the Boarding Program

The comprehensive and practical Boarding Program addresses each of the requirements of the Boarding Standard whilst taking into account jurisdictional legal variables.

Developed with schools, for schools – and with input from ABSA - CompliSpace’s Boarding Program has been designed to be tailored to each school’s specific requirements while remaining up to date with legal and regulatory changes as they occur.

CompliSpace’s Boarding Program allows schools to focus on the management of the day-to-day delivery of their boarding service whilst having assurance that they are compliant with their key legal and regulatory responsibilities.

The Program also includes online training to assist with the induction of boarding staff.

The broad framework of topics included in the Standard means that the Boarding Program does not exist in a vacuum. The CompliSpace Boarding Program is therefore purposefully designed to integrate with other programs and policies that should already exist in a school.

“There was a gap in our documentation and staff understanding before. Our place is now safer in reality and safer in legality, due to the Standards and the CompliSpace Boarding Program. This gives me confidence that we are doing everything we can to ensure a safe environment for our boarders and staff.” Shane Hennessy Director of Boarding, Sacred Heart College
