How it works

  • Take some time to get an overview of the self-assessment.
  • Plan 30-45 minutes for a single run through all the questions.
  • Just click the Self-assessment section and you can get started.
  • Six areas (the main modules of a policy) are provided with questions for you to answer.
  • You can answer the questions in any sequence; there is no set order.
  • The answers will be saved automatically.
  • If an interruption occurs, it is possible to continue completing the self-assessment in one and the same browser. (As long as no cookies have been deleted in the meantime!)
  • The result will be sent via email to the email address specified.

Not all areas will be relevant to the same extent for a particular organization/institution. It is possible to flag questions as “Not relevant” in the survey; such questions will be listed separately in the assessment.

Estimation of the results

After completion of the self-assessment, an automatic estimation is displayed based on the number of points scored.

Breakdown of the results

130 points or more (max. 150):
The structures and measures in place in your organization appear to be comprehensive in all areas. The institutional child protection system seems to be established.

Up to 130 points:
Your institutional child protection system appears to have promising approaches, structures and measures in place, yet can be further strengthened and/or improved in some areas.

Up to 100 points:
Several relevant approaches, structures and measures have already been initiated. These should, however, be supplemented, strengthened and improved.

70 points or less:
It is important that you take a close look at the subject of child protection in your organization/institution since it appears that there are still substantial risks with regard to child protection.
