A child taking part in a performance - including TV, film, theatre, paid sporting activities or modelling - has to have a chaperone with them.
The CPSSS licenses, registers and trains chaperones for children who have been licensed to perform. The chaperone would care for a maximum of 12 children and would be engaged / employed by the production company.
The Education Authority holds the register of all licensed chaperones throughout Northern Ireland.
The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.
The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.
While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
