Free CSE Awareness Training – Afternoon

For National Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Awareness Day 2017, we are running free CPD certified half day training for anyone working or volunteering with children and young people in faith settings, sports, community and after school youth groups.



The exclusive FREE half-day training sessions will take place on Friday 17 March (the day before National CSE Awareness Day) and will help delegates to better recognise, respond and report suspected child sexual exploitation in settings where they may be given basic safeguarding training but not specific training around child sexual exploitation.

Any child could be a victim of child sexual exploitation regardless of their background, upbringing, race, ethnicity, sexuality or gender. This is why we feel it is important for all those who are regularly in contact with children and young people to be aware of the signs and how to respond to effectively protect them.

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the basics of CSE – what it is and how it occurs
  • To understand the myths and stereotypes relating to victims and perpetrators
  • To understand some of the ways perpetrators groom and exploit
  • How to identify risk indicators and vulnerabilities in children and young people – spotting the signs
  • To increase knowledge about safeguarding CSE and how to implement best practice
  • How and where to report your concerns

Who is the training suitable for?

The training is at an introductory level so only suitable for those with little or no prior awareness of national policy or procedures relating to best practice in responding to child sexual exploitation.
