Child Sexual Exploitation
This one-day course is designed for social workers, their managers, child care practitioners (including school staff or multi-agency partners) or anyone that undertakes direct work with children and young people to understand, recognise and respond to child sexual exploitation (CSE).
The course aims to support participants to understand what CSE is and how it differs from other forms of child sexual abuse. It will also highlight the different models of CSE such as organised groups, peer on peer as well as the risks to children and young people linked to gangs, county lines or trafficking.
Throughout the training course, participants will note the indicators of CSE, provoke thought on ‘spotting the signs’ and how it impacts children and young people. It will also provide insight into what makes children and young people vulnerable, as well as the possibilities of online abuse plus their physical and mental health.
The course will involve a suitable mixture of presentations and group work, with a focus on interaction, discussion and information available to take away to support assessment work.
The days will begin at 9.30am for registration and tea/coffee, with a prompt 10.00am start, and will end at approx 4.30pm.
A light lunch will be provided. Please advise of any allergies or dietary requirements of each individual when booking places on this course.
An electronic certificate of attendance will be provided to all attendees by email after attendance at the course.
